Free Application for Federal Student Aid

This application is used to apply for all types of federal, state, and institutional aid awarded by the College. Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA online (fafsa.gov). Students who are unable to complete a FAFSA online may complete a paper FAFSA and submit it to the Financial Aid office for processing. Once the FAFSA is processed by the U.S. Department of Education, a federal Student Aid Report (SAR) is sent to the student. An electronic Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR), which duplicates the information on the student’s SAR, is sent to the Financial Aid office. The ISIR must be processed and have a valid expected family contribution (EFC) before a student’s eligibility for any financial aid funds can be determined and an award issued.

Verification process

Some federal aid applicants are selected by the Department of Education for a process called verification. Verification requires that documentation be provided to verify the information submitted on the FAFSA.  Students are notified by U.S. mail of all documents needed to complete the verification process.  Any documentation requested by MCC must be provided within 14 days of receipt of the request or the student file may be inactivated. No financial aid disbursements can be made until the verification process is complete. Students may call the Financial Aid office to re-activate the file at any time during the current academic year once all documents are received.
