Student Resource Manual
This Student Resource Manual is your
guide through your educational experience here at McDowell Tech. Inside you will find policies,
procedures, rules, due dates and other things that you will need to know. You will also find names
and number of people who are willing to assist you in any way as well as a calendar that can help
you plan each semester.
Students may apply for financial aid for the 2017/18 academic year beginning October 1, 2016.
Traditionally, the FAFSA filing cycle begins on January 1 of the year preceding the award/academic year...but not this year, the filing process begins earlier...October 1!!!
The student/parent may use income and tax information from the previous calendar year. For example, students applying for the 2016/17 academic year may use 2015 income tax information. No more waiting for your tax return for the new year to be completed!!!
Because of this, most students and/or parents should be able to utilize the IRS Retrieval Tool which transfers tax information directly from the IRS into the FAFSA application. This will allow the Financial Aid Office to award financial aid earlier so the student and/or their family can plan for upcoming college expenses.
Any questions can be directed to the MTCC Financial Aid Office.
