Financial Aid

The purpose of the financial aid program at Manchester Community College is to provide financial access to the college for as many eligible students as current funding will allow.

Is Financial Aid for You?

Many students need educational financial assistance for various reasons, and the Financial Aid Office is available to help you meet the basic expenses of tuition and fees.

Getting Started

Avoid the wait! Go to to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before calling or coming to campus.  You may find that most answers to your financial aid questions can be found right here or in your myCommNet account.

Attend a FAFSA Day Session 

The FAFSA Day session is designed to provide current and prospective MCC students with free, hands-on assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  MCC Financial Aid and Enrollment Services staff will be available to help you with the FAFSA.  The session’s goal is to have students and their families walk away with the satisfaction of knowing they have accomplished one of the biggest steps in getting ready to go to college.

The 2018-2019 FAFSA is completed with 2016 financial information. All information reviewed by the MCC staff will be kept private and confidential and will not be used for any purpose other than helping the students and families apply for financial aid. Students and family identities will be protected to the best extent possible, and none of the information being requested will be sent to vendors for other purposes besides applying for aid.

February 24, 2018: Registration for the February FASA Day will open in January.
