Students Transferring from TMCC to Another College or University Within a FAFSA Year
Add the School Code to your FAFSA.
You will need to add the school code of the college or university you plan to attend to your FAFSA. You can add a school code to your FAFSA by selecting the "Make Corrections to a Processed FAFSA" link on the FAFSA home page.
School Codes of other Nevada Institutions are below:
|010362||Community College of Southern Nevada (CCSN)||www.csn.edu|
|006977||Great Basin College (GBC)||www.gbcnv.edu|
|002568||Nevada State College (NSC)||www.nsc.nevada.edu|

|002568||University of Nevada, Reno (UNR)||www.unr.edu|
|013869||Western Nevada College (WNC)||www.wnc.edu|
It can take up to two weeks for the new school's financial aid office to show receipt of your FAFSA on their system.
Complete your File at the New School
You need to contact the financial aid office of the college or university you plan to attend to determine what additional steps you need to take in order to complete your file. Check out the school's website for quick information.
Cancel your Aid at TMCC
Once you are sure you plan to attend the new school, you must decline any financial aid that you are scheduled to receive during the semester you plan to transfer. You will want to do so by July 1 for fall semester and December 1 for spring semester. Federal regulations only allow you to receive aid from one institution per semester. If you plan to continue to take a class or two at the University of Nevada, Reno or Western Nevada Community College, you may want to investigate TMCC's consortium agreement before your cancel your aid.
If you have already completed a FAFSA for the current year, you do not have to complete a new FAFSA if you are transferring during the same academic year. You do, however, have a few important tasks to complete.
