Financial Aid

Welcome to San Diego Miramar College's Financial Aid Website!

The Financial Aid Office is committed to assisting students who are looking to continue their education but lack the financial resources. We recognize that every student may have unique circumstances that should be considered. Every application is carefully analyzed with complete confidentiality to protect your personal financial information.

How To Apply

On a yearly basis, all financial aid applicants must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available and can be filed on the internet

A current Admissions Application to the College must be on file before we can process your FAFSA application. Complete the application using your personal information as it appears on your Social Security card. You must provide your Social Security number in the application or our office will not be able to process your financial aid.

Financial Aid Programs



State law requires that students attending the college pay an enrollment fee. Students enrolled in credit classes are currently required to pay $46 per unit. The college offers the Board of Governors Waiver BOGW online application, (or a print and return form) a state-funded program which waives the enrollment fee for all eligible students.

Effective with the 2015-2016 school year, you must apply for a Board of Governors Fee Waiver using the FAFSA or California DREAM Act application.

Employee Code of Conduct

All Officers, employees, and agents of the institution are expected to always maintain exemplary standards of professional conduct in all aspects of carrying out his or her responsibilities, specifically including all dealings with any entities involved in any matter in student financial aid. As required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) an institution participating in a Title IV loan program must develop, publish, administer, and enforce the code of conduct.

The Code of Conduct applies to the officers, employees, and agents of Miramar College.

Cost of Attendance


Determination of your financial need is based on information you provide on your FAFSA application. A student budget is an estimate of how much it will cost you to attend college and support yourself during the period of attendance.

Listed below are the student budgets for the 2015–16 school year. Your actual costs may differ from our standard budgets.


Fees are subject to change at any time based on decisions by the State Legislature.
