Applying for Aid: Part-time Students

Step one Step two Step three Step four Step five step six Step seven

Step 5 – Submit Additional Information

After your FAFSA is processed, MCC will be sent the information electronically. For electronic filers, the data is usually received in 1 to 2 weeks. For those who completed a paper FAFSA, the data is usually received in about 4-8 weeks.

Once your FAFSA data is received, you may be required to submit additional information to the MCC Financial Aid Office. Additional information is often required for one or more of the following reasons:

Database Mismatch – Your FAFSA data is matched against various federal databases (Social Security, Selective Service, Dept. of Veteran Affairs, etc…) to make sure you meet the basic eligibility requirements for federal financial aid. If it cannot be determined that you meet the basic eligibility requirements, you may be asked to submit any of the following:

  • Copy of your Social Security Card.
  • Copy of your birth certificate.
  • Proof of U.S. citizenship.
  • Selective Service registration confirmation.
  • Copy of your alien registration card.
  • Proof of being a veteran of the armed forces.

Verification – One third of all federal aid applicants are randomly selected for a process called "verification". If you are selected for this process, you will be required to submit the following to the MCC Financial Aid Office:

  • Verification Worksheet
  • An IRS transcript of the student's Federal tax return
  • An IRS transcript of the parent's Federal tax return (Dependent students only)

Please be aware that all errors, mismatches, and verification issues must be resolved before your financial aid can be finalized and applied to your account.

Requests for transcipts of Federal Tax Returns can be made online at the IRS web site at
