Financial aid Application & FAFSA®

FAFSA Assistance

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is your application to the US Department of Education for federal financial aid programs, like Pell Grant, Federal Work-Study, or Direct Loans. The FAFSA® is an annual application found at StudentAid.gov.


**Notice from Department of Education**

The updates to the 2024-25 FAFSA have caused a delay in the Department of Education's processing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  2024-25 FAFSA student information will not be available to schools to review or make financial aid offers until mid-March 2024.  If you have any questions, please email Financial Aid at FinancialAid@mccneb.edu. 

The 2023-24 FAFSA applies toward the academic year between September 2023 to August 2024. It is available from October 1, 2022 to June 30, 2024.

The 2024-25 FAFSA applies toward the academic year between September 2024 to August 2025. It is available from December 31, 2023 to June 30, 2025.
