Attending college can be a dream come true. MVC will work with you to keep your college experience affordable. Discover resources that can help with college costs, and learn how to apply — and stay eligible  — for financial aid.

Let us help invest in your future

Financial Aid is designed to be used as a supplemental income for your educational expenses. It may not cover all your expenses, but it can certainly help. You probably qualify, so complete as many free applications as you can, as soon as you can, as some aid is first-come, first-served. And if you need help at any step in the process, we’re here.
