Financial Aid Deadlines

Paperwork Deadlines:
For Fall AwardsJune 30
For Spring AwardsNovember 30
For Summer AwardsApril 30
Meet the Deadline:

Meeting the deadline dates means ALL of the requested forms and paperwork have been received by the Financial Aid Office, including an electronic copy of your Student Aid Report and full admission to Mountwest Community and Technical College. This does not mean that you file the FAFSA by the deadline date but, rather that you file the FAFSA so the Student Aid Report is received in our office, along with all requested forms and paperwork, by the deadline date. Students who do not meet the deadline dates must pay for all expenses (tuition, fees, and books) from their own resources.

Once documents are received and processed, additional documents may be required, so it is always important to check myMCTC for any new financial aid requirements.

To ensure that you meet the deadline date you should file the FAFSA at least one month prior to the deadline date, and you should check with the Financial Aid Office to make certain that you are fully admitted. No funds will be disbursed to you unless your financial aid file is complete. We are unable to offer you an award until you are fully admitted to Mountwest Community and Technical College.

Missing the above deadlines, with the exception of summer, does not prevent you from receiving financial assistance; however, it may delay the receipt of assistance. Students failing to meet the above deadlines MUST be prepared to cover college expenses from their own resources. Contact the Business Office to make arrangements to pay.

The final deadline for submittal of all verification documents is 30 days prior to the end of the academic year/period you are enrolled. This designated deadline allows the Financial Aid Office to process and authorize disbursements within the timeframe permitted under regulations set forth for administering the federal and state financial aid programs. Failure to provide requested documentation within this timeframe will result in cancellation of your financial aid offers.

Deadlines for Loan Promissory Notes* and New Loan Requests:
Fall SemesterNovember 10th
Spring SemesterApril 10th
Summer SemesterJune 10th

*Note: Promissory notes submitted after the above dates may not be processed in time for the funds to be released by the end of the semester. No loan money can be released after the end of the semester. No new loan requests will be processed after the above dates.

If you miss the deadlines you can still apply for federal financial aid, but you must be enrolled at the time funds are disbursed, and you must be making academic progress. You should be prepared to cover your expenses from your own resources if you apply late.
