financial assistance.

When you complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) you automatically apply for a wide range of state, federal, and MCLA assistance, such as Pell Grants, Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants, MASS Grants, the College Work Study Program, Perkins Loans, and Federal Direct Student Loans. You can learn more about how to apply for financial aid here.

The 2022-2023 FAFSA is available now! The FAFSA opened on October 1 and our priority deadline for funding is January 1. To encourage students to apply early, we are offering virtual FAFSA appointments on October 12 through October 15. Schedule your FAFSA appointment today! (If you have not submitted your 2021-2022 FAFSA for the current academic year, it's not too late! )

If you haven't already, review the estimated annual costs to attend MCLA. Especially given the opportunities a quality MCLA education provides, it's surprisingly affordable. Looking for something more personalized? Based on the information you provide, our Net Price Calculator can tell you the price of attendance that students similar to you paid after financial aid.
