Institutional Scholarships

Students must submit a scholarship application unless otherwise noted below.  Institutional scholarship funds will be applied before Federal Grants (i.e., Pell and SEOG) and after all other non-loan funding sources (i.e., A+, MCC foundation scholarships, external scholarships) are applied and are non-refundable. Scholarship funds can be used for tuition, fees and educationally-related books and supplies.

Depending on other types of aid the student is receiving, the institutional award may be minimal or not applicable.
