The Financial Aid Office at MCC is committed to assisting students and their families find financial resources to successfully afford the cost of going to college. The results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) along with the cost-of-education will determine whether or not a student has financial need. Costs related to disabling conditions may affect your financial need but having a disability does not qualify a student automatically for financial aid.  

 

The office of Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCES-VR) is an agency under the New York State Education Department that provides financial and advocacy support for persons with disabilities for the purpose of gaining full employment. To locate your local ACCES-VR office visit http://www.acces.nysed.gov/vr/ or call 1-800-222-5627.
