What is financial aid?

Financial aid helps students and their families pay for college.  This financial assistance covers educational expenses including tuition, fees, books and supplies.  There are several types of financial aid that may be combined into your financial aid package.

To receive financial aid, you must complete Midland College's 4-step process:

  1. Complete a FAFSA (MC school code is 009797)
  2. If requested, provide any additional documentation
  3. Apply for Midland College Scholarships
  4. Check your Campus Connect to review your aid package
Types of Financial Aid
  • Grants  
  • Scholarships
  • Veterans Benefits
  • Student Loans
  • Work Study
  • Exemptions, Waivers and Prepaid Tuition Plans

Disbursements
Any amount of money remaining after your tuition, fees, books, and room & board charges (if applicable) have been paid, will be disbursed to you in what is called a residual.  There are three different ways you can receive your residual.
  1. You can designate a direct deposit account on your Campus Connect and the money will automatically go into that account
  2. You can get a Chap Card at Enrollment Services that acts as both your Student ID and a debit card
  3. If neither of the first two options are feasible, you may receive your refund in a paper check.  Please be aware that additional information may be required and there may be delays if the check has to be mailed.
        *Please note that most of our general scholarships will pay for tuition, fees and books only.  Any money that is not used will be   returned to the scholarship fund to be used by other students.

The earlier you apply for all types of financial aid, the better.  Please be aware that if you do not complete your FAFSA and turn in all required documentation by the dates listed below, you may not receive your funds in time to pay for your classes.  Midland College's priority dates to complete the FAFSA are as follows:
