U.S. Federal Student Aid
Students in most MCC programs are eligible to apply for U.S. Federal Student Aid. You may apply at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), an online application submitted to the U.S. Department of Education.
- For Midwestern Career College to receive the results, you must enter MCC’s Federal School Code, 041390.
- The FAFSA must be completed annually to ensure federal aid eligibility for each academic year.
- If you estimated your income information on your FAFSA, please be sure to update the information once your income tax return is completed. Leaving the income information as estimated will delay your financial aid processing.
It may take at least three business days for MCC to receive your completed FAFSA information from the government.
Federal Pell Grant
The largest Federal-need based student aid program providing grant assistance ranging from $650 to $6495 per academic year depending on the student’s EFC and program of enrollment. The Pell Grant is a federally funded program.
The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is an additional grant available to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need and gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants and whose Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is a zero. The FSEOG does not need to be repaid.
