Students who are to receive the Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, North Carolina Community College grant, the Less Than Half Time (LTHT) grant, the Targeted Assistance grant, and/or the Lottery grant must have attended, and have actively participated in classes through the last date for tuition refund as published in the College's Academic Calendar in order to receive their awards. Students who fail to attend and actively participate in their classes by this date, or who withdraw from school prior to this date, are not eligible for offered awards.
The primary purpose of student financial assistance is to provide financial resources to students who would otherwise be unable to pursue post-secondary education. The Financial Aid staff at MCC will attempt in an ethical manner to meet the needs of all students, to the extent funding will permit.
As a community college student, you are eligible to receive education tax credits that can reduce the expense of your education. There are two education tax credits available, the Hope Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit. The credits are based on education expenses paid for you, your spouse, or your dependents. The credits are allowed for qualified education expenses paid in 2008 for an academic period that begins in 2008 or during the first three months of 2009.
