important information regarding your 2018-2019 financial aid

Starting Fall 2018, San Diego City, Mesa and Miramar Colleges will be launching a new student portal called mySDCCD.  The new portal will provide students with access to search for classes, register, find out what additional steps you need to take (to-do list), access your financial aid status, and more.

Please Note the Following:

  • Direct Deposit - Due to the transition to a new student system mySDCCD, direct deposit for Financial Aid will not be available for Fall 2018 only.  Make sure your address is up to date in Reg-e as your financial aid check will be sent to your mailing address on file.  If you wish to pick-up your financial aid check on campus, you must go to the Financial Aid office to have this delivery option set up.
  • We updated the Financial Aid Consoritum Agreement: Effective Fall 2018 students can receive their aid funds even if all of your classes are at the other campuses.  Please note that the major you are following must be offered at the college you are enrolling at in order to be eligible for financial aid.
  • Some of the aid programs available such as Federal Work Study or Federal Supplemental Educational Grant (FSEOG) have limited funding and/or require that the review of your file after receiving missing documentation be time sensitive. Don’t delay! Submit your documents as soon as possible.
  • mySDCCD is expected to go live July 10th.  In the meantime, the colleges will be communicating via email regarding your financial aid application and steps you may need to take in order to complete your file.
  • Non-resident fees will be $245.00 per unit effective the Fall 2018 semester.

This usually involves providing us with documentation to verify what was submitted on your financial aid application. Please review what items you will need to complete and visit your financial aid office.

  • Q: I received an email indicating my Program of Study does not match the school I'm attending?
  • A: You may have received an email that informs you that your program of study does not match the school you are attending.  This could mean that the financial aid application you submitted to the college you wish to attend does not match the declared major, or program of study, based on your admissions application or education plan.  Please visit the financial aid office to verify the next step you will need to take in order for us to process your application.
  • Q: I received an email stating that I reported more than one school code?
  • A: Financial Aid regulations only allow students to apply to receive financial aid from one college.  Although San Diego City, Mesa and Miramar colleges are part of a district, students are only allowed to receive financial aid from one college at a time.  Our recommendation is that you come to the financial aid office where you intend to study to fix any potential issues with your financial aid application.
