To receive federal financial aid you must meet the following conditions and provide documentation if requested to do so:
Note: These requirements apply to all federal aid. Also, federal aid is NOT available for correspondence study, continuous registration hours or audit hours.
Occasionally students or parents will feel that the information required on the FAFSA does not realistically reflect their circumstances or their ability to provide the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). When this happens, a student may choose to submit an appeal to the MCC Student Services office requesting that his or her situation be reviewed.
Financial Aid Appeal: The most common type of appeal requests a reconsideration of the amount of aid that has been offered by providing additional information that will assist the office in determining the student's eligibility for financial aid.
Dependency Appeal: This appeal is for students who feel that they should be considered independent from their parent(s) for financial aid purposes, even though they do not meet any of the automatic independent criteria as outlined in the FAFSA.
