Financial Aid and Tuition
Submit Your Spring 2017 FAFSA
More than 90% of all MTC 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.
The priority processing deadline for the Spring 2017 semester is November 15. To apply for financial aid for the Spring 2017 semester, you must complete a 2016-17 FAFSA application.

What is a priority deadline?
Some forms of student aid, like federal Pell Grants, are essentially unlimited—if you qualify, you will get the money. But other forms of aid are first-come-first-served, because the available pot of money is limited. When you submit your FAFSA by the priority deadline, you’ll be eligible for all the available scholarships and grants. Submitting by the priority deadline also guarantees that you’ll get your award letter and your money before classes start.
