, Step 2: Apply for Financial AidWe encourage all degree and certificate seeking students to apply for financial aid. Financial aid may come in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and work-study positions.

Get Started

The first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). MECC’s school code to include on the form is 009629. Remember to apply for MECC Foundation Scholarships at www.mecc.edu/scholarships

Deadlines to Apply for Financial Aid

Although you can file the online FAFSA anytime, it is best to complete the FAFSA prior to May 1 of the year that you plan to attend MECC; however, there are specific deadlines for applying that we strongly recommend. See the Financial Aid Web page for these dates and more details about financial aid. Research available scholarships here.

After completing STEP 2, continue with STEP 3 in the enrollment process.
