The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) opens October 1, 2022 for the 2023-2024 school year (August 2023 - August 2024). The 2022-2023 FAFSA filing deadline is June 30, 2023.

The U.S. Department of Education sponsors the Federal Student Aid Information Center (FSAIC). The FSAIC operates a toll-free hotline to answer questions about federal student aid, the FSA ID and the FAFSA. The FSAIC can be reached by calling 1-800-433-3243.

Filling out the FAFSA is a critical first step in receiving Federal student aid (including grants, loans and work study) for each academic year. Because FAFSA funds are distributed on a first -come, first- serve basis you will want to complete the form as soon as possible. Once you submit the FAFSA, it generally takes 3-7 days for your information to be imported into the MATC Financial Aid data system.

The MATC Financial Aid office assists students by awarding financial aid to help pay education-related expenses. Financial aid is available from federal, state, and private resources.

Iraq or Afghanistan Service Grant

The Iraq or Afghanistan Service Grant is awarded to a student whose parent or guardian died as a result of U.S. military service in Iraq or Afghanistan after September 11, 2001. Identified students may receive increased federal financial aid if at the time of the parent or guardian’s death they were either less than 24 years old or were enrolled in college.

Eligibility is based on the following:

  • You are Pell eligible but have not received the maximum amount based on your EFC, OR
  • You are not Pell Grant eligible because your EFC is too high, you may then receive the IASG.

For students who are eligible, the Financial Aid Office will automatically offer this grant based on information provided by the Department of Education.
