Welcome to Miramar College’s Financial Aid Website!
The Financial Aid Office is committed in 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 and financial information.

• Note that the e-BOGW will be available online from Nov 16, 2012 to Feb 11, 2013.
• Students who wish to apply to for a BOGW outside of the above dates, should apply for FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. All Students are encouraged to apply for a FAFSA to determine if you are eligible for other types of financial aid.

Appeals for Spring 2013
Important Reminder: Appeal forms can only be submitted starting January 7, 2013 after the Fall 2012 grades are posted. Appeals will not be accepted and reviewed before that date. You must be enrolled in order to submit your appeal. As this is one of our peak periods, appeal reviews may take longer than normal for a decision.
Experimental Site Initiative
Effective with the 2012-2013 school year, San Diego Miramar College (along with Mesa College and City College) have been approved by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in an experimental initiative regarding "Overborrowing" that allows our college to reduce or eliminate Unsubsidized Loan eligibility and borrowing for certain groups or categories of students.
The following groups or categories of students will not be eligible to borrow Unsubsidized Loans:
1. 1st Year students
• 1st year is defined as students who have completed less than 24 units in their current program or major based on their educational plan.
• Units that will be counted towards the 24 units will be units that fulfill the major, general ed and district requirements for the current program or major based on the educational plan.
• Units that will not be counted towards the 24 units are units that are basic skills or remedial, ESOL, electives or any other units that are not applicable to the current program or major based on the educational plan.
2. Students approved on Appeal
• Students who have an "Unsatisfactory" status for any reason and who are approved on appeal will not be eligible for an Unsubsidized Loan.
Satisfactory Academic Progress
The Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy has changed effective Summer 2011 and supersedes any previous standards. The SAP standards have been strengthened and the appeal process and the reinstatement process are now enforced more rigorously. Students who previously appealed and were approved must meet the SAP standards and any conditions set by the appeal decision or they will be disqualified again. Click here for information.
Important Changes For the 2012–13 School Year
All changes are effective July 1, 2012 and apply to all students unless otherwise indicated.
Online Classes And Out-Of-State Students
If your legal or mailing address is located in another state and you are enrolled in all online (web) classes, you will not be eligible for federal financial aid. If you feel your status is incorrect, you must come into the Financial Aid Office and provide appropriate documentation to show you reside in California.
Important Update for AB540 Students
Effective January 1, 2012 All students (including all AB540 students) are welcome to apply for any scholarship unless otherwise specified by donor.
