Financial Aid

Pell eligible students may receive half of their Pell Grant award if they enroll in six or more units. Students may also apply for loans during the spring semester for use in the summer. Check with the financial aid office for the final day to apply for loans (usually around April). Students are eligible for the tuition waiver during the summer intersession.


In order to minimize your reliance on financial aid/loans be sure to budget, plan, fundraise, and apply to as many scholarships as possible.

Review Mt. SAC Study Abroad Advisor Casandra Rubio's scholarship worksheet and make an appointment with your study abroad advisor, writing center, or faculty for scholarship writing assistance.

The Gilman scholarship awards Pell Grant eligible students (required) a maximum of $5,000 per program (usually $2,000-$3,000).
Deadline: Thursday, March 9, 2023
