Paying for College

Save Money on Tuition

Paying for college doesn't have to be complicated, and we're here to help.

79% of our Student Receive Aid

First of all, two years at Mid saves students $12,000-$18,000 in tuition vs. the average of Michigan public universities. You're on your way to savings. But, most of Mid's students receive financial aid to offset their college costs even further.

80% of first-time, full-time freshman receive some form of aid to offset costs.

Options for aid include federal funding, like grants or loans, or Mid scholarships. Mid also employs many student workers through both College funding and the Federal Work Study Program.


Through one online application, you can sign up for all of our scholarships. Scholarship applications are open from January 1st until April 1st of each year. For a full list of scholarships and to access the online portal (when available), CLICK HERE (link will open in new tab).

Federal Aid

Your aid package will be determined based on your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), which you can fill out at Mid's School Code is 006768.

File soon. It takes a minimum of a few weeks to process financial aid for new students.
