Need-based aid

Students who do not meet the 2.5 GPA criteria but have financial need may qualify for an MSMC Grant of up to $4,000 per year. All students should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible to determine eligibility for federal, state, and MSMC Grants.
