Financial Aid Can Help Cover Your Cost:

  • All of the grants and scholarships noted in the above example are AUTOMATICALLY awarded when you apply to SMC. Our Financial Aid Counselors will help you understand the federal loans available to you to help cover Your Cost, if needed.
  • To qualify for financial aid at ANY U.S. college or university, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can submit the FAFSA at the same time you apply to SMC, before you apply or after. But you must submit it by June 30 of the year you plan to attend college.
  • Every student’s financial situation is different. The costs presented above are for estimating purposes only.
