Be sure to indicate on your admissions application that you’re eligible for VA Educational Benefits.
Once you've applied, give yourself a pat on the back. You've taken the first big step. And you're already being connected with Mid's Veteran Resources Representative and your Mid Mentor, who are both ready and waiting to help you throughout your time at Mid.
Meet the Mid Mentors to learn more about them and to easily contact your Mid Mentor with any questions. If you don't yet know who your Mid Mentor is, no problem! We can put you in touch at (989) 386-6661 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
STEP 1: Get your Financial Aid in order.
Apply for your Letter of Eligibility for VA Educational Benefits at the Veterans Online Application Website. It’s important that you retain a copy for your records.
When education benefits are approved, the VA mails you a certificate of eligibility. This takes approximately 6-8 weeks. This certificate is issued only once, and indicates the number of months you are eligible for benefits. A copy of this notification must be provided to Financial Aid at Mid.
To collect your educational benefits, you must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program. Upon completion of verification of enrollment, classes are certified and sent electronically to the VA Office. Afterwards, you need to verify enrollment monthly.
You may need to request the following documents as well.
- DD214 (Military Service Records) If you need to request a copy of your DD214, visit www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/.
- Military Transcripts Visit this website to request your transcripts, https://jst.doded.mil/official.html.
Apply for Federal Financial Aid
Beyond veterans benefits, you may be eligible for other forms of federal financial aid. If you haven't yet, you should begin this process. It takes a minimum of a few weeks to process financial aid for new students.
File your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov to determine your eligibility for grants, loans, scholarships, and work study.
Be sure that you add Mid's school code [ 006768 ] to your FAFSA form.

STEP 2: Set up mymid and your Mid Email.
Add myMid to your phone’s home screen for easy access to useful tools and important updates.

Simply launch a web browser on your phone, go to midmich.edu/mymid, tap the Share button or browser menu, tap the Add to Home Screen button, and tap Add.
It is vital that you check your Mid email. We will begin sending you important information about your financial aid and next steps immediately. Visit midmich.edu/mymid, click Account Setup, and follow the prompts. To complete this process you must have a non-MidMich email or personal email on record with the College. You likely provided this email on your Admissions Application. If you can’t recall or no longer have access to that email, contact your Mid Mentor for assistance.
Contact the Mid Helpdesk at (989) 317-4630 or email@example.com.
STEP 3: Send us your official Transcripts.
Request that an official transcript be sent either to the mailing address below or to firstname.lastname@example.org from each college/university you have attended. Unofficial transcripts are not evaluated. Transcripts that you deliver to Mid are considered unofficial even if they are sealed. Expect an email from us once your transcript(s) have been evaluated.
If mailing, please have your official transcript sent to the following address
ATTN: Hank Bryan, Registrar
1375 S. Clare Ave.
Harrison, MI 48625
Complete additional placement testing (if necessary)
Appropriate placement in courses promotes your success and allows us to assist you in selecting courses that align with your current skill levels. If you do not have access to transcripts or test scores, you may need to do additional placement testing. Your Mid Mentor can help you determine what you need to submit or what testing needs to be completed.
STEP 4: Participate in Orientation.
