Federal Pell Grant
The Pell Grant is a federal program designed to provide undergraduate students, who have not attained their first bachelor's degree, with a foundation of financial aid. Pell eligibility is determined when a student completes a FAFSA. The Department of Education determines Pell eligibility by using the Federal Methodology formula. The award is to be used for education expenses, which include tuition, fees, room, board, books, and supplies. The amount of Pell Grant students receive depends on their enrollment status and EFC. Pell Grants are paid to students by crediting their student accounts. If the amount of the grant exceeds the amount due to MCC, the student will receive a check for the remaining grant amount.
 
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

If the amount of the grant exceeds the amount due to MCC, the student will receive a check for the remaining grant amount.
