Financial Aid/Loans/Scholarships
Students planning to use financial aid to pay for their tuition, fees and/or books need to make sure their file is complete by the MCC Financial Aid priority processing date for the semester.  This means that the FAFSA has been completed online and sent to MCC and the student has turned in all documentation and/or forms that MCC is required by the Federal Government to obtain to complete and/or verify a student's information.  Students are notified by email of any items required to complete their file. 
 
It is very important that students check their semester statement online to make sure that financial aid has been applied  to their account.  Any balance not covered by financial aid becomes the student's responsibility and must be paid by the due date.
 
Employer or Sponsoring Agency
The MCC Business Office can invoice the student's employer or a state agency for tuition/fees/books if a signed authorization is submitted prior to the payment due date or at the time of registration.  The authorizations cannot be contingent on the student receiving specific grades.  The outside agency will be billed at the close of the drop/add period and payment is expected within 30 days.  The student is responsible for any portion not covered by the outside agency.  Written authorizations need to be submitted each semester.
In-District residents must have lived in the Carson City-Crystal, Central Montcalm, Greenville, Lakeview, Montabella, Tri County or Vestaburg public school district for at least six consecutive months prior to the first day of the semester.
 
MCC is required by the Michigan Department of Education to verify residency of students.  MCC reserves the right to make the final decision on residency eligibility.
 
Students must provide at least one of the following documents, dated, to verify residency: a current Michigan driver's license, property tax receipts, a current rental or lease agreement or utility bills that include the student's name and address.
