Welcome to the Financial Aid Office

Completing FAFSA applications in the Lowell Office

The starting point to be considered for federal financial aid begins with completing a FAFSA form online. A new FAFSA is required for each academic year. 

Ensure your FAFSA is submitted for the correct academic year, and you have confirmation that your FAFSA was successfully submitted.

  • MCC will receive your FAFSA electronically in approximately 5-7 business days.

Students and parent(s) when applicable must both complete a FAFSA, each using their own FSA-ID. Click here for FSA-ID assistance.

  • Parents should use an email address different than students.
  • Independent students will not be required to provide parent information.
  • The FAFSA application process will help determine if you are an independent or dependent student.
  • Please contact FAFSA for assistance with setting or resetting your FSA-ID and/or Password. 
  • Please contact the MCC financial aid team if you need assistance with completing the FAFSA or visit one of our offices.
