Special Consideration

Requesting Special Consideration at MCC 

If you (and/or your family) believe to have unusual circumstances that might affect your need for financial aid, you must first complete and submit the *FAFSA to the federal processor.  Then complete and submit a “Special Consideration Request Form” to the financial aid office. In some cases, we may decide to take these unusual circumstances into account and adjust your cost of attendance or the information used to calculate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). You must provide adequate proof to support any special circumstances.

Possible examples of unusual circumstances include:

  • Separation/divorce after you have completed the FAFSA
  • A family member who recently became unemployed
  • A one time cash payment
  • Changes in income or assets that may affect the student’s eligibility for financial aid

To request a reevaluation: print, complete and submit the appropriate “Special Consideration Request Form” explaining your situation along with all supporting documentation.
