Students who are not eligible to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) due to their citizenship status are considered FAFSA Non-Filers and may still be eligible for other types of student aid.
Students who have deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) or are undocumented are encouraged to complete the FAFSA Non-Filers application. The application process is simple and safe.
In order to apply for financial aid, students must complete the FAFSA Non-Filers Application by July 1 for priority consideration. Students must be pursuing a degree or certificate program at TMCC. Funding is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students can contact the Financial Aid Office for questions or assistance.
Listed below are the steps that students must complete to be considered for the grants and scholarships associated with the FAFSA Non-Filer application.
