All students who have been accepted for admission to Gogebic Community College and who apply for financial assistance receive consideration. No student is denied the opportunity for financial aid because of race, color, or creed. When determining a studentís need, the financial resources of the studentís immediate family are considered along with any special circumstances. (In awarding aid to eligible students, aid is not only targeted toward the neediest student but is also awarded based on the timeliness of application.) A number of scholarships are awarded based on merit considerations in addition to those based on need.
Students must meet the following eligibility requirements in order to receive funding from federal and state sources:
NOTE:A student is not eligible for federal financial aid if their program length is less than six months.
A studentís file is incomplete until they receive a financial aid proposal from the GCC Financial Aid Office. Students should never begin attending classes until they know how much they are eligible to receive in financial aid if they plan on participating in any of the financial aid programs.
