Financial Aid and Grants

U.S. Federal Student Aid

Students in most MCC programs are eligible to apply for U.S. Federal Student Aid. You may apply at 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.
