FAFSA Application Priority Date

The application and awarding process will take time to complete. Therefore, the FAFSA priority date is highly recommended. Students may apply after this date, however, we cannot guarantee the awarding process will be completed to hold a place in classes without payment on the payment due date. A Financial Aid Award must be completed and accepted online through myMPTC before the payment due date in order to meet the payment deadlines or to qualify to charge books to anticipated aid. The FAFSA application is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov on January 1 each year.

If the semester priority processing date is missed, a student's application will still be accepted and processed, but it may not be processed in time for you to use financial aid to pay for tuition or books. However, you can still take advantage of paying your tuition through myMPTC in order to meet the College's payment deadline for tuition and fees. If you make a payment in full or set up a payment plan and are later approved for financial aid funding to cover your total bill, your payment would be reimbursed.

Admissions Application Priority Date

The application process will take time to complete, therefore, the Admissions priority date is highly recommended. If you are interested in using financial aid to pay tuition and fees, admission to an eligible program is required to complete a financial aid award. New students may apply after this date; however, we cannot guarantee the financial aid awarding process will be completed to hold a place in classes without payment on the payment due date.

Payment Due Date

In order to confirm enrollment, a student must choose and complete one of the four options below by the due dates.

  1. Payment-in-full.
  2. The On-Line Payment Plan allows students to split their semester tuition and fee charges into equal payments.
  3. Third Party Contract Application must be submitted by the payment due date.
  4. Completed Financial Aid Award

First Day to Charge Books to Anticipated Aid

A Financial Aid Award must be completed and accepted online through myMPTC before the payment due date in order to meet the payment deadlines or to qualify to charge books to anticipated aid.

Financial Aid - Date of Record

All financial aid awards are reviewed and adjusted based on your enrollment as of the date of record (15th calendar day) for the semester; enrollment will be locked on this day.  Be sure to have your schedule finalized by the date of record each semester.
