Debt Forgiveness Program

Former Muskegon Community College students, who have financial holds up to $1,200 with MCC and who have not been enrolled at MCC for three or more academic years, are being encouraged to re-enroll under an initiative called the MCC Debt Forgiveness Program.

“The main goal of this debt forgiveness initiative is to get former MCC students, who have left because of a debt owed to the college, to return so that they can graduate with a credential,” added MCC Provost/Executive Vice President John Selmon, adding that  qualified students may be eligible to have their debt forgiven,.

Eligible students must:

  • not have been enrolled at MCC for three or more academic years;
  • have financial holds of no more than $1,200 with MCC;
  • possess and, if accepted, maintain a 2.0 GPA;
  • commit to ongoing support services designed to help them achieve their academic goals;
  • have a completed FAFSA on file; and
  • have the means to pay current charges

Students who agree to this contract and fulfill it will have their past due balance reduced incrementally over three semesters.The application submission does not guarantee acceptance into the MCC Debt Forgiveness Program. The MCC Care Team will review the request and contact the applicant.
