The New York State Aid For Part-Time Study Program (APTS) is a financial aid grant for part-time students meeting residence, income, academic, or other requirements, as established by state law. Applications are available at the MCC Financial Aid Office or can be downloaded from the Forms Page on this web site.*
Completed APTS applications should be submitted to the MCC Financial Aid Office prior to the deadlines indicated on the application. The deadline for the Fall semester is usually mid-September and the deadline for the Spring semester is usually late January. Students are notified of their awards approximately 6-8 weeks after the application deadline.
For more information on the APTS Program, see our Aid For Part-Time Study Program page.
*APTS applications typically become available in June, prior to the new academic year.
