Note: Regarding a FAFSA Mismatch - a FAFSA mismatch occurs when your FAFSA and your Admissions Campus of Record (COR) are not the same.

  • If your COR is City College but your FAFSA is Mesa or Miramar you need to update your FAFSA to include City College.
  • If your FAFSA is City College but your COR is Mesa or Miramar you need to let our office know that you want to receive your financial aid from City College. We will submit a service ticket to have your COR changed to City College.
