My Financial Aid

Welcome to Saddleback College's MY FINANCIAL AID.

My Financial Aid is designed so you can do the following:

  • View your document status
  • View your financial aid awards
  • View messages
To access the online system, enter your Student ID and your Mysite PIN and click the submit button. You must have filed a FAFSA and received a document request email from our office in order to log into My Financial Aid. If you completed the CCCApply BOGG Fee Waiver application and not the FAFSA you will not be able to log-in to My Financial Aid.

Completing a financial aid file is not the same as completing the FAFSA application, as additional documentation is necessary before any award can be made. Students should ensure that they respond in a timely fashion to any request received for additional documentation, as not doing so will delay their award notification, and ultimately their disbursement.

All emails from the Financial Aid Office will be sent to your Saddleback email address beginning the first day of school. Your college email address will be the official means of communication with you.



How Financial Aid Funds Are Delivered

•The Saddleback Cash Card, a Money Network® Enabled MasterCard® (same day). 


*The email will direct you to select your option by “Enrolling Today” at
*You must be enrolled in classes in order to enroll with Money Network.


Financial aid must be used only for approved educational expenses at Saddleback College during the academic year. Approved allowances that are included in the standard financial aid budget include “direct” costs such as tuition, mandatory fees and books. Other costs that may be considered are “indirect” costs such as room and board (rent, food, utilities, household supplies), transportation (bus fare, gas, emergency vehicle repairs), and personal/miscellaneous. Pre-existing debts and conditions will not be considered as an expense.
Financial aid is available to assist eligible students by minimizing the financial burden of attending college. It is intended to assist, NOT REPLACE, resources needed to meet the cost of education. It is intended to pay for expenses that are incurred as a result of going to college and not intended to pay for day-to-day living expenses.

Financial aid funds MAY not be available at the beginning of each semester due to grade posting and/or the processing timeline to determine student’s eligibility. Students are encouraged to be prepared to pay with their own resources for books & supplies.
