Financial Aid

Over 90% of all Midlands Tech students receive financial aid. The first step to getting financial aid, including scholarships, loans, grants, and work study, is to fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Our school code for the FAFSA is 003993.

July 15 is the deadline to apply for financial aid 

In order to receive the award before fee payment is due for the fall semester, you are encouraged to complete the FAFSA by July 15. Click here to learn more about financial aid and scholarships at MTC
