Summer Financial Aid

To be eligible for financial aid at Muskegon Community College, you must be enrolled as a “regular student” in an eligible program of study.  A regular student is someone who is enrolled or accepted for enrollment for the purpose of obtaining a degree or certificate offered by MCC.

If you plan to enroll in classes for the 2017 summer semester and you wish to be considered for the maximum amount of financial assistance, you should…

  1. Complete the “2017 Summer Financial Aid Request” (available Feb 13th) application.  Submit your request before March 3rd to have your application reviewed by the semester payment due date.  Late summer applications will be accepted up to Friday, June 30, 2017.
  2. Complete the 2016-2017 year FAFSA.
  3. Watch you Web Advisor account for updates.  Submit any items requested by the Financial Aid Office.
  4. Complete a separate “Loan Request Application” (available by March 1) or work-study application if needed.


Your eligibility for aid is determined from the 2016-2017 FAFSA application.  You will be considered for the following aid:

  • Pell Grant – You may receive any remaining Pell that was not used during the fall 2016-winter 2017 semesters.
  • College Work Study – You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits.  Priority is given to students who are already working in the CWS program.
  • Michigan TIP Program – You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits.  You may use up to 24 semester credit hours per year (July 1 – June 30).
  • Direct Stafford loans – You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits.  Requires a separate loan request application completed from the MCC financial aid Web site.

You must be registered for ALL of your summer classes by the end of the 12 week refund period.  We will determine your eligibility according to enrollment status on our census date.  See the summer class schedules on MCC’s Web Site.
