CMC Student Online Financial Aid Portal

Welcome to the Claremont McKenna College online financial aid system. You can:

  • View and accept or decline your financial aid awards;
  • View your student loan history, if you have borrowed;
  • Check the status of your student loans for the current year, if applicable, and 
  • View important messages from the CMC Financial Aid Staff

Log In Instructions

Note: You must have a financial aid record already established at CMC in order to use this system. If you have not begun the financial aid application process, you can get started by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (for federal and most state aid) online. Enter our school code, 001170, on your application and we will receive your data electronically. You should also complete the CSS Profile (for institutional need based aid) using CSS ID 4054. Once we have determined your financial aid eligibility, we will notify you with your financial aid award.

I am a first-time user

Click on the "First-Time User" link in the LOG IN box. You will be prompted to enter your Student ID number. Answer two identity questions when prompted to do so. Once you are identified, you will create two security questions from the drop down menus. Below the security questions, you will find two fields to create your PIN. The heading says “Change PIN,” but as a first-time user, you will be creating one—don’t worry about the heading. Enter a PIN with 5 characters or more in the first box and confirm the PIN in the second box. When you are finished, click “Submit.”

I am a returning student

If you are a returning student and know your PIN, you are ready to use this system. Simply enter your Student ID number beginning with the number '3' and your Net Partner PIN. You will be asked to create two security questions. Select these questions from the drop-down menus and provide your answers. Click “Submit.”

I forgot my Net Partner PIN

Click the "Forgot Your PIN?" link below the LOG IN box. Enter your Student ID number and click “Submit.” You will be asked to verify your identity with a security question. Answer the question and select “Submit.” Enter a new PIN of at least 5 characters. Confirm and submit the new PIN. PLEASE NOTE: The Office of Financial Aid will not be able to provide you with your PIN.
