Attendance at a Financial Literacy session is required for a Federal Direct Stafford Loan borrower if you are a new student at Montgomery College (MC) or if you are a first time borrower at MC for the fall 2011. You must attend a 60 to 75 minute financial literacy session at one of the three campus locations. Please be on time. The doors will close 5 minutes after the presentation is scheduled to start. To be eligible for the loan you must register for your classes and you must maintain a minimum of 6 credits for the semester. Please view the dates on the attached form for the 60 to 75 minute session that is convenient for your schedule in September, if you did not attend a session in August. Funds will not disburse to the new student borrower account unless this requirement is met. Please contact Disability Support Services if you need accommodations. Contact the financial aid office if you have questions.
