Financing Your Education

96% of mmc students receive financial aid

Financial aid includes any monetary resources (other than your family’s) that help offset the cost of a college education. A typical financial aid package includes scholarships, grants, loans and work-study.

Types of Financial Aid

Grants are awards that you never have to repay. Available through both federal sources and Mount Marty College, they are awarded based on demonstrated financial need.

Scholarships are awarded based on your academic performance or extracurricular activities. Private scholarships are available through civic and fraternal organizations, and several are awarded through Mount Marty. They also never need repayment. We are ever-thankful to alumni and friends who make such gifts possible.

Loans provide funding that you must repay. Most federal loans can be deferred while you attend college at least on a half-time basis.

Employment programs provide part-time work to help you pay for college. Federal work-study and Mount Marty College campus employment offer jobs in a variety of areas on campus such as food services, the book store, administrative offices and even outdoors on our beautiful campus.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Most students receive some type of assistance. To determine your eligibility, please complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Eligibility for certain need-based programs is based on your family's financial resources as disclosed on the FAFSA. Once you’ve finished the FAFSA, our Financial Assistance Office will determine your need based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) provided by the government. Financial need is calculated using a simple formula:

Cost of Attendance (Tuition, Room & Board, Books, etc.)
- Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
= Financial Need

Since you’re likely to receive some sort of financial aid package, your personal cost is determined this way:

Cost of Attendance (Tuition, Room & Board, Books, etc.)
- Financial Aid 
= Your Out-Of-Pocket Cost
