MECC has signed and returned the Certification and Agreement to the U.S. 教育部. MECC will use no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES ACT to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.

  • Must be actively enrolled in 6 or more credits that are financial aid approved for program placement
  • Must have a family income below the College’s established EFC ceiling of 200,000 for credit students.
