Important Deadlines

Priority FAFSA Processing Deadline

While we accept applications all year, in order to ensure priority consideration, your results from the FAFSA and any other required documentation must be received in the Financial Aid Office at Manchester Community College by the following dates:

  • Fall semester admits: May 15
  • Spring semester admits: October 1

After these dates, applications will be processed on a rolling basis throughout the year, on a first-come, first-serve basis (see "Regular FAFSA Processing Deadline", below).

Regular FAFSA Processing Deadline

The deadlines to have financial aid processed:

  • Summer 2014 sessions: May 1
  • Fall 2014 semester: October 1

We cannot guarantee that FAFSA will be processed before the start of classes if the deadline is missed. Students submitting FAFSA applications or verification paperwork after the deadline must make plans to pay for their classes. Students denied financial aid are still responsible for payment of tuition, fees, and any other financial obligations to the college.


Summer Financial Aid: Only the Pell grant and limited SEOG grant are available for summer courses for those students who are pell eligible and for classes required for their degree program. Transfer students who used their pell in another institution are not eligible for summer aid.
