Financial Aid

Please Note: We are aware that many students and families have been impacted by the current pandemic in different ways, and we want you to know that we are here to support you however we can. 

If you have lost employment or have experienced a significant reduction in income due to COVID-19, we may be able to adjust the income on your 2020-21 FAFSA to reflect your current financial standing. Please see this letter for more information and the 2020-21 Special Circumstances Appeal Form.

Priority Deadlines – For the best chance at a great financial aid package, completed FAFSA applications must be received by:

  • MAY 1 – Summer term
  • AUGUST 1 – Full academic year (fall and spring semesters) or just fall semester
  • DECEMBER 1 – Spring semester

(If you missed these dates, you can still apply!)

Access to Federal and State College Funding

Middlesex Community College offers financial help to many students in need through funding provided by federal and state taxpayers.

This financial aid bridges the gap between the cost to attend college and the family’s ability to pay.

MxCC creates an individualized Financial Aid Package for each student who applies through the FAFSA program. Depending on the student’s need, financial aid grants may be awarded to cover:

  • Tuition
  • Fees
  • Textbooks
  • Possible additional expenses (transportation, etc.)

For more information:

Virtual

If you need to reach the Financial Aid office, you may email or call 860-343-5741 to speak with a Customer Service Representative. Please note that all official college business must be conducted via the student’s college assigned email.

Drop-In Financial Aid Webex meetings (no appointments necessary) are also available on:

Virtual FAFSA Help Sessions

MxCC’s Financial Aid Office will offer “virtual” help sessions for current and prospective MxCC students who need help completing their 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or have FAFSA related questions. Students will meet remotely with a Financial Aid Representative via a WEBEX chat room.  Students must be able to access the FAFSA website from their own computer to complete the application. We kindly ask that you visit the FAFSA site to create your FSA User ID (if you/parent does not already have one) and fill out as much of the FAFSA as you can, such as the demographic information, prior to the virtual meeting.

In-person

Make an appointment to meet in-person with a financial aid counselor here.
