FAFSA Fridays

Muskegon Community College is offering help with the financial aid process for anyone considering attending college, regardless of which institution they choose. “FAFSA Fridays” at MCC can help you cut through the red tape!  To schedule a time please sign in or create an account.  This is not a new application.  If needed, you may fill out an application after completing the account information.

If you are a potential college student, or the parent of a potential college student, odds are you have heard about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The earlier you submit the FAFSA, the better. Early applicants generally have a wider variety of financial aid opportunities than those who postpone the completion of the application.  Here are the dates and times available:
