A college education is one of the best investments you can make, but money can be a barrier to achieving your education and life goals. A variety of financial aid options exist to help with the costs of college so attending can become a reality.
The Financial Aid Process
Grants, work-study, scholarships and loans require you to fill out and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Among other requirements, you will need MCC's Federal School Code, which is 001077. Financial aid based on FAFSA may take six weeks or longer. If you don’t receive funds when tuition is due, you need to sign up for a payment plan to avoid being dropped from classes. You can check your funding status in your Student Center at my.maricopa.edu.
Certain things, such as being selected for verification or needing to appeal, can lengthen the processing time. Also, students who complete the FAFSA or submit required paperwork close to the start of a new semester will encounter a longer processing time due to high volume. This is why we strongly urge you to complete the FAFSA early and to submit ALL requested documentation as soon as possible. You can check your financial aid status by logging in at my.maricopa.edu.
