Federal Financial Aid Programs MCC Offers

Federal Pell Grant

Provides grant aid to undergraduate students who have financial needs and meet other requirements for student financial aid and does not require repayment.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG): These grants are awarded to undergraduate students who demonstrate exceptional financial need. The value of SEOG grants is set by the federal government and may vary from year to year. The amount of funding for this grant is limited. Grants are awarded on a first-come first served basis.

Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loan: A low-interest loan for eligible students. Subsidized loans do not accrue interest while the student is in school and during the six month grace period. Repayment begins six months after the last day of attendance.

Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan: A low-interest loan for eligible students. Interest will accrue while the student is in school. Students are able to make arrangements to pay the interest as it accrues or they can defer that interest and it will be capitalized prior to repayment.

Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduates: Low-interest loan offered to the parent(s) of dependent undergraduate students. The PLUS loan is subject to credit approval. Repayment begins 60 days after final disbursement. However, the parent may qualify for deferment under certain circumstances.

Payment Plans and Scholarships: In addition to federal financial aid programs, we also offer payment plans. These additional options are set up to bridge the gap between tuition and the amount of financial aid awarded.
