Due to recent directives from the Department of Education, Midland College no longer accepts documents with sensitive data by email or fax. Documents may be submitted in person, by mail, or online.

In-Person

Documents can be dropped off at the Financial Aid office in the Scharbauer Student Center at the main campus. Make sure masks are on before entering the building.

Mail

If you prefer, the documents can be mailed. If you choose this option, mail all documents to the following address:

Midland College Financial Aid
3600 N. Garfield
Midland, TX 79705

Online

To submit eligible documentation online, combine all documents into one file. For example, a Suspension Appeal requires an appeal form, a letter, and any supporting documentation and all must be combined into one PDF file. Partial submissions will not be accepted. To submit online, follow the steps below:

Your SAP GPA differs from your academic GPA in that there you are allotted withdrawals and you can make up grades. However, for your SAP GPA everything counts (all grades ever received at Midland College are averaged together). In addition, your SAP PACE is the percentage representing the successful completion of courses vs. the total attempted throughout your entire college career, MC or any other institution. 

Dropping

If you increase or decrease your enrollment level prior to the enrollment snapshot/census date, your financial aid will be adjusted, as appropriate, to ensure that it is the appropriate amount given for your enrollment level. 

Withdrawing

If you decrease your enrollment level after the census date, your grant aid will not be reduced. This means, for example, that a student who is enrolled in 15 credits as of the census date, and who later drops a 5 credit class, will not have his/her aid reduced to the 3/4-time level. Please note that a reduction of enrolled hours after the census date will result in a grade of "W" for the withdrawn course(s), and may have a negative impact on your Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). 

First, reach out to your instructors and ask for guidance. Instructors can be contacted via email and have office hours set aside to meet with students. Faculty contact information can be found in our online directory.
