Log In Instructions

To access your student account for the first time, click on the link "First Time Entry".  You will be using your MCC student email as your Student Login.  If you have any issues, contact Trish Runion at

You must have a financial aid record already established at MCC in order to use this system. If you have not begun the financial aid application process, you can get started by completing online the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Enter our school code, 001931, on your application and we will automatically receive a copy.

Once we receive your information from the FAFSA, we'll notify you of your PIN and you can then start using this system. 

We strongly encourage all of our students to complete the FAFSA even if they do not believe they will receive any Pell grant aid.  The information we receive is used for more than offering federal aid.  We have other aid, state and institutional, that the FAFSA information helps us with determining eligibility.  If you still do not desire to complete this application, please contact Trish Runion so we can get your student account set up.
