MC Participates in the following programs

FEDERAL PELL GRANT 

This grant is designed to help undergraduate students who show need and have not earned a bachelor’s or professional degree. All students applying for financial assistance through Midland College must apply for a Federal PELL Grant first, through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The US Department of Education uses the data reported on the FAFSA in a formula established by Congress to determine a student’s financial need. Students who are in default or overpayments with any federal financial aid program are not eligible to receive a PELL Grant until the default/overpayment is resolved.

FEDERAL SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY GRANT (SEOG)

This grant is awarded to students with exceptional financial need. SEOG funds are limited, and priority for the award is given to students who receive a Federal PELL Grant with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of zero. Midland College automatically packages SEOG awards to students who meet the requirements on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted. Eligibility for SEOG is determined with the data reported on the FAFSA. Students who are in default or overpayments with any federal financial aid program are not eligible to receive a SEOG Grant until the default/overpayment is resolved.
