Please Note: MCC's Tuition Due Date for all Summer classes was August 7, 2014. After August 7, if you will be attending MCC using a training grant, you CANNOT register for Fall classes until a signed Authorization to Start Training has arrived at MCC from your OneStop counselor otherwise your classes will be cancelled that evening for non-payment. It is your responsibility to ensure that your contract has arrived in the Office of Student Account Services prior to registering for classes. Enrolled MCC students can verify that your contract has been received by checking your CampusCruiser/Web Advisor account in the Financial Profile/Make a Payment section.
Applying for Financial Aid for Fall 2014 semester? You must complete the 2014-2015 FAFSA immediately. At this point, your financial aid award will not be ready to cover your Fall tuition bill but once the award is finalized, you will still be entitled to the funds despite having already paid the bill. Read more detailed information on MCC's Financial Aid webpage here.
