Steps for New Students
Many Paths. One Goal. Excellence.
There is no better way to know if Anna Maria College is right for you than to visit the campus in Paxton, Massachusetts. Daily tours are offered Monday-Friday at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for prospective students and their families. Tours are led by Anna Maria Student Tour Guides. Following the tour, you will have the opportunity to meet with your Admission Counselor who will provide information about the admission process and answer any other questions you may have.
Full-time day undergraduate students in a Bachelor's Degree program interested in being considered for need-based financial aid are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA determines a student's eligibility for need-based financial aid by examining such information as the family's income, savings, assets, family size and number in college.
The quickest approach to filing the FAFSA is by completing it online. Before completing the FAFSA, it is important to register for FSA ID which gives you access to Federal Student Aid online systems. Include AMC’s school code (#002117) to ensure information is sent to Anna Maria electronically.
The FAFSA can also be filed using a paper application. To request a paper application, call the Federal Student Aid Hotline at 1-800-4FEDAID.
