MOre Information:


The Scholarship Office will effectively award, communicate and coordinate all private and institutional aid to support MCC’s mission of providing accessible and affordable education for our students, with an eye toward improving enrollment, retention and completion rates.

HOW the process WORKS:

Scholarships are a gift that reduce the overall cost of attending MCC. These gifts do not need to be repaid, and are the ideal opportunity for all MCC students to keep college costs low. Students are required to fill out an application, and each application will be sorted and ranked by criteria specific to each scholarship opportunity. Students selected for each scholarship will be notified of their award, and the award will be placed on the student's account once all scholarship paperwork is complete.
