Financial Aid Opportunities

Financial Aid


Beginning this summer: An additional Pell grant is available to students who would like to accelerate their degree. Students can be eligible even though they may have received all their regular Pell over the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters. Call our Lion Central offices for GT 662.243.1920 or Scooba 662.476.5079 to learn more. 

East Mississippi Community College believes that qualified students should not be denied an education because of financial need. To meet this commitment, EMCC offers assistance to students from a number of financial aid programs -- including scholarships, grants, loans and campus employment.

The financial aid award process

The financial aid award process at EMCC begins each year on April 1 for the following school year, which begins in mid-August. As student applications are completed, awards are made on a “first-in, first-out” basis. We encourage students to make application as soon as possible after Jan. 1 of each year.  Funds are limited in some programs; the earlier students apply, the better the chance students will receive funds from programs for which they are eligible.
