How is my aid determined?
Financial need is determined by subtracting a student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from their MMCC cost of attendance budget. MMCC must consider all sources of financial assistance and subtract the estimated amount of all assistance from the student’s estimated total financial need.
Your Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
To determine a student’s eligibility for need-based assistance, MMCC must consider the student’s EFC. The EFC is calculated by the U.S. Department of Education from the information submitted in the student’s FAFSA. The EFC measures a family’s financial strength and determines the students' eligibility for federal student aid. The MMCC financial aid office must use the EFC calculated by the U.S. Department of Education. However, when appropriate the MMCC financial aid office may make adjustments. Contact the MMCC financial aid office for more information.
