MCC Provides Community Free Help with FAFSA Forms

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Muskegon Community College is offering help with financial aid forms to anyone considering attending college in the fall, regardless of which institution they choose. “FAFSA Fridays” at MCC can help you cut through the red tape! Sessions are held every Friday from 1-3:00 p.m. in Room 116A, from February 1 through March 22.

If you are a potential college student, or the parent of a potential college student, then odds are that you have heard about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). One of the advantages of completing the FAFSA is that nearly everyone who applies will be eligible for some sort of aid, which is generally offered regardless of credit history. Federal loans generally have better repayment terms than private loans from banks or other financial institutions.

The earlier you submit the FAFSA, the better. Early applicants generally have a wider variety of financial aid opportunities than those who postpone the application.
