Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid 

The main goal of the Financial Aid Office is to assist students in securing adequate funding to meet their educational expenses here  at the Mohawk Valley Community College.  We are dedicated to help our student's with all Financial Aid questions.  Our Office is also equally committed to improving the financial literacy of our students and providing financial planning information for life after graduation.

Where should you begin?

The first step in securing funding begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  All grant, loan and work-study applicants need to complete this application in order to determine eligibility for need-based financial aid programs.  The correct FAFSA web site is https://fafsa.ed.gov/ There is also an online tutorial you may find useful.  Please note, in order to complete or edit the FAFSA you must create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA_ID). If you experience difficulty with establishing or have forgotten your Federal Student Aid ID credentials you may call 1 (800) 557-7394 for assistance.

The current FAFSA is the  2017-2018 FAFSA.  The 2017-2018 FAFSA is used for Summer 2017, Fall 2017 and Spring 2018. You will use your 2015 IRS Federal income tax information to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA.

The 2018-2019 FAFSA is available starting October 1st, 2017.  This FAFSA will be used for Summer 2018, Fall 2018, and Spring 2019.  Youwill use your 2016 IRS Federal Income tax information to complete the 2018-2019 FAFSA.

Our federal school code is 002871; our state school code is 2105.
