Cost of the Program

Students interested in MVCC's Airframe and Powerplant Technology Program may apply for financial aid and scholarships. Because MVCC’s program fully equips successful students for a specialized career in just one year, it has costs that are not traditionally associated with the low tuition of a community college. That said, the community college format provides a remarkable value for students interested in FAA certification.

Students seeking financial aid or scholarships should first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), to determine eligibility. Information and applications can be found here. MVCC’s Financial Aid office is located on the Utica Campus in Payne Hall, (315) 792-5415, and on the Rome Campus in the Plumley Complex (315) 334-7709.
The College also offers payment plans, online payment, automatic payment, and more.
