Step 3: Accepting Your Award and Financial Aid Terms & Conditions

​​​​​​​​Once your FAFSA has been processed by DMACC and you have completed all of the outstanding requirements noted in Step 2, you will receive an award offer. DMACC will send your award offer to you via DMACC email, personal e-mail and text if you provided your cell phone number on your Application for Admission This award offer will allow you to review your financial aid eligibility from the state and federal government – such as federal grants, loans, and college Work-Study.

Accepting Financial Aid Awards

Instructions on accepting your financial​​ aid awards give a detailed explanation with actual screen shots of the screens you will see when accepting your award. 

If you accept a federal student loan, you may need to complete additional steps to borrow through the federal program.  If you have never borrowed loans before coming to DMACC, or if this is the first time you will be receiving loans at DMACC, you will need to complete Entrance Counseling and/or the Federal Master Promissory Note (MPN).  If you’d like more information and instructions regarding completing counseling you may visit ​DMACC’s Entrance ​Counseling/MPN webpage.​


Can My Financial Aid Award Change?

Yes. Your financial aid award is based on you attending full-time for each term within the academic year (this may include summer, depending on your program of study).  If you do not enroll full-time, your award will be adjusted.  If at any time, before or during the semester, your enrollment changes – you add or drop a class or withdraw from all your classes – it is very important that you contact the Financial Aid Office.  We can help determine if your registration changes have an impact on your financial aid. View here for reasons why my financial aid award may be adju​sted

Accepting Work-Study Award

If you are eligible and have accepted a Work-Study award, and you would like to be considered for a position on campus, don’t forget to apply for a Work-Study job​. ​Your eligibility for college Work-Study will be shown on your award offer.​​
