Step One - Gather Documents

Gather financial related documents (e.g., tax returns, payroll stubs, bank account statements, etc.) for yourself and your parents if applicable as a dependent student. These may be needed to apply for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application (CADA). To learn about the documents you may need, please visit the FAFSA Help or the California Dream Act Application.

Step Two - Apply Online

Apply by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) or California Dream Act Application (CADA) online. Your financial aid application can be submitted following October 1st of each year. The priority deadline for submission of the FAFSA or CADA is March 2nd of each year. The El Camino College (ECC) Federal School Code is 001197. 

Step Three - Review Your SAR

A Student Aid Report (SAR) will be sent to your email address on the FAFSA, or via U.S. mail. Once you receive the SAR, please review it to ensure the information on the report is accurate. If you need corrections or updates, please log into the FAFSA website to make corrections. 

Step Four - Check MyECC

Log into your ECC issued email account (MyECC) and check for notices. All messages from the ECC Financial Aid Office are sent via email or posted on your MyECC account.

Step Five - Visit BankMobile

Select your refund/disbursement preference with BankMobile to receive your financial aid.

When it comes to deciding how to get your money, you deserve choices. Your choices include:

  1. DEPOSIT TO AN EXISTING ACCOUNT – Money is transferred to an existing account the same business day we receive funds from your school. Typically, it takes 1 – 2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.
  2. DEPOSIT TO A BANKMOBILE VIBE CHECKING ACCOUNT – If you open a BankMobile Vibe Checking Account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day we receive funds from your school.

To get started, enter the personal code you should have received from BankMobile in the mail in a green envelope or in an email sent to your MyECC account. Once you have your personal code you should select a refund preference or visit BankMobile for more information.

Never provide your personal information (name, social security number, date of birth, etc.) through email. All BankMobile transactions are online through a secure system. Please use our links to ensure you connect to the official BankMobile website.
