The FAFSA opens October 1, 2020 for the 2021-2022 school year.

Filling out the FAFSA is a critical first step in receiving Federal student aid (including grants, loans and work study) for the 2021-2022 school year. Because FAFSA funds are distributed on a first -come, first- serve basis you will want to complete the form as soon as possible.

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.
