Financial Aid Outreach Services

The Office of Student Financial Aid provides information about the financial aid process by hosting a variety of outreach programs. Through our outreach efforts, we help students and families become familiar with different resources available to help pay for a college education. We are committed to raising financial aid awareness in our community by partnering with Montgomery College faculty and staff, K-12 schools, and public service programs.

Financial Aid Workshops

Financial aid workshops provide an overview of the financial aid application process, including information about federal, state, institutional, and private financial aid programs. Workshops also provide information on financial aid applications, deadlines, and online resources for students and parents. Workshops will be added to this page when scheduled.

Financial Literacy

Financial Literacy Sessions are a requirement for first-time loan borrowers at Montgomery College. During these presentations, Montgomery College students learn about the rights and responsibilities of a student loan borrower, navigation of the loan process, tips on managing finances, and understanding credit reports and scores. Sessions will be added to this page when scheduled.

First Year Seminars and Student Development Courses

The Office of Student Financial Aid provides guest speakers for Montgomery College first year seminars and student development courses. These courses present learning skills in money management and financial literacy to promote financial independence. Speakers discuss the financial aid process and provide information on grants, scholarships, student loans, and work study. Courses will be added to this page when scheduled.

Other Special Events

The Office of Student Financial Aid hosts and participates in various events throughout the year as part of our financial aid outreach initiative. Events include local high school visits and Financial Aid Nights, workshops for nonprofit agencies and faith-based organizations, college fair participation, and other local events. We can cater our workshops to both traditional and nontraditional students and their families. Events will be added to this page when scheduled.
