    Financial Aid

    Applicants may qualify for financial aid and are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available online. This application includes grants, loans and work study. Information about financial aid, including instructions for completing the FAFSA, is posted on the MHCC Financial Aid web page. Scholarships are also available. Visit the web page for more information.

    Veteran Services

    If you are a veteran, member of the Reserves or National Guard and plan to take classes, you may be eligible for educational benefits through the Department of Veterans' Affairs or Oregon Department of Veteran Affairs. Benefits may also be available to eligible spouses and/or children of veterans.

    The Office of Veteran's Services, located on the main Gresham campus in AC1152, provides a one-stop, centrally located area for students applying for or have questions regarding their veteran benefits.
