  • Apply for financial aid
  • When you decide to go to college, the first thing to consider is how you will pay for school. If you are applying for financial aid you want to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) or the Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA). Also, be sure to explore other ways to cover costs such as scholarships and employer reimbursements. If you are paying out of pocket, a community college like MHCC is a great option for a high-quality education at a reasonable price.
