BECOMING A MENDOCINO COLLEGE STUDENT

We want you to succeed and achieve your goals and so require that all new and transfer students complete the matriculation process as follows:

  • Apply for Admission 
  • Complete a New Student Orientation
  • Complete the Placement Tool or Submit Transcripts 
  • Meet with a Counselor - A counseling appointment can be scheduled after the above steps are completed.  The counselor will assist in the selection of an appropriate program of study and develop an education plan to guide you in course selection to achieve your goal.  Appointments can be made through the following: 707-468-3048 or counselingappointments@mendocino.edu
  • Schedule an appointment with the School Certifying Official - The School Certifying Official will answer questions about your educational benefit, verify the education plan developed meets VA standards, and submit the certification of your enrollment to the VA so that you can begin receiving your benefit.  Certification of your enrollment to the VA is only completed upon your request.  For an appointment, please email: veterans@mendocino.edu

PAYING FOR COLLEGE 

The following provides access to the cost of attendance and how to pay for college.

Please review current Mendocino College Fees and Tuition and direct any questions regarding residency or fees and tuition to veterans@mendocino.edu.  

We also encourage you to review the Net Price Calculator, which is intended to provide an estimate of net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) based on what similar students paid in a previous year.

All students are encouraged to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application CADAA.  Once the application has been received and processed, detailed information about aid for which you are eligible can be accessed through the My Financial Aid Status option in MyMendo.

For assistance in completing the FAFSA or CADAA, or more information about available aid, please connect with the Financial Aid Office at: financialaid@mendocino.edu or 707-468-3110

For many students, borrowing in order to finance their college degree is necessary. While student loans may be a necessary part of financing your degree, it’s important to borrow responsibly. This means only borrowing for what you need. College is an investment in your future.  To review estimated student loan debt upon completion, please review the Mendocino College scorecard.

Students using educational benefits are encouraged to review the GI Bill® Comparison Tool.  This tool allows you to determine the current educational benefit pay rate based upon the benefit you will use and the college you attend.  It also offers the option to compare colleges to determine which is the best fit for you.
