How to Apply
Students applying for federal aid using FAFSA on the Web will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) Information Acknowledgment within 10 to 14 days of submitting the application. Students applying using the paper version of the FAFSA will receive a SAR within 3 – 5 weeks of mailing the application. The GMC Financial Aid Office will receive the information electronically. Eligibility for Title IV aid is based on the information on the SAR, so the student should review it carefully. If any information is incorrect, the student should follow the instructions included with the form to make necessary corrections.
