      • Check your 2021-22 financial aid award offer on MyMHCC to make sure that your contracted credit hours match your enrollment plans. To update your credit load, click on and complete the “Credit Revision Form”.
      • Accept/Decline your 2021-22 Award Offer
      • Complete/Submit any other missing documentation

    NOTE: Bookstore vouchers are NOT available until your financial aid has been awarded and accepted, and Financial Aid Orientation has been completed.
