Applying for Aid
Financial Aid at Mayland is as easy as 1, 2, 3
Apply for Admission to Mayland
- Submit an MCC General Application for Admission so we have your student information on file.
- Schedule an appointment with an Admissions Advisor by calling 828.766.1234.
Complete the FAFSA
- Apply online here for your FSA ID - a username and password which confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you are a dependent, both you and a parent will need an FSA ID.
- You will need any 2014 tax returns and W2s filed by you and/or your parents (if dependent).
- Mayland’s federal school code is 011197.
- Be sure to submit the FAFSA before the Financial Aid priority deadline for processing (see Important Dates).
- Submit the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Be sure to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to populate tax information.
- Contact the Financial Aid Office to schedule an appointment for help with the FAFSA or view the FAFSA tutorial.
Follow Up on Your FAFSA Application
- Once the Financial Aid Office receives your FAFSA, you will receive a letter from Mayland requesting additional documentation for the purpose of processing your financial aid. If you do not receive your letter within two weeks of submitting your FAFSA, please contact the Financial Aid Department to check on the status of your aid.
- To avoid a potentially costly delay in processing, please respond promptly to all communication from the Financial Aid Department.
- Submit High School, GED, and other college transcripts included on your MCC admissions application.
- The Financial Aid Department requires official transcripts for financial aid processing.
Official transcripts from prior institutions must be in a sealed envelope.
Using Electronic Processes for Financial Aid Notifications
Occasionally, Mayland Community College will communicate with students by way of campus email or a personal email address that is provided by the student. No action is necessary for a student to opt-in to receive email communication. However, students who prefer to receive only paper communication from the Financial Aid must complete the Email Opt-Out form (available upon request).
The type of notification to be provided through email could be (but is not limited to) information concerning Satisfactory Academic Progress, Financial Aid Appeal decisions, and requests for financial aid documents needed for processing. Formal communication such as the Financial Aid award letter will be sent in writing, via the U.S. Postal Service.
