HOW TO APPLY - Current MCCC Students

BEFORE APPLYING:
Before beginning your MCCC AwardSpring online application, have the following available:

  • Mercer County Community College ID#, if you have one.
  • If you do not have an MCCC ID, visit www.mccc.edu/apply to complete the online admissions application. Within 48 to 72 hours, the Admissions Office will send you an email and a letter, which will include your new MCCC Student I.D. number.
  • Current GPA
  • Most recent copy of your unofficial transcripts
  • Program of study

Optional: FAFSA confirmation page. This is required to qualify for some financial need-based scholarships. Not all of our scholarships require a FAFSA.

WHEN APPLYING:
It's easy! Students may apply for one or more scholarships by submitting a single application. Scholarship applications may be submitted online at mccc.awardspring.com

  • Create a user account in our online scholarship portal, MCCC AwardSpring, and complete the online scholarship application.
  • Once you have submitted your application, check your MCCC AwardSpring Dashboard for any "Follow-Up" notifications.
  • Generally, Follow-Ups are essays. Take your time and write thoughtfully, because a really good essay can set you apart from other applicants.
  • Be sure to answer all questions and upload all required documents. Applications without all requested materials will be considered incomplete.

AFTER APPLYING:

  • IMPORTANT: Keep your information, including email address changes, up to date on AwardSpring. We cannot notify you of scholarship updates if we cannot contact you!
  • If you are a continuing student, you can apply using your fall transcripts. But for your application to be complete, you must log in to AwardSpring after the end of the spring semester and update your application with your most current spring transcript. Failure to update with your current spring transcript will make you ineligible for fall scholarships.
