Eligibility for summer financial aid is determined from the 2018-2019 FAFSA application. Additionally, you must be in good standing of the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policies.

You will be considered for the following aid:

  • Pell Grant – You may receive up to three full-time Pell Grant payments in a year if you have lifetime eligibility remaining.
  • 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 academic 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 MCC’s financial aid website.
  • Promise Scholarship – No worries…if you have any remaining eligibility, we will update your summer award by March 8,2019.

To be eligible, 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. Guest students are not eligible for all federal and some state financial aid programs.

Finally, you must register for ALL of your summer classes by the end of the 12 week refund period. We will determine final eligibility according to your enrollment status on our census date of Wednesday, May 29. See the summer class schedules on MCC’s website.
