Learn How Madison College Can Help

Financial Aid

There are many types of financial aid packages from federal and state programs to private funds. The one thing most of them have in common is that they start with Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

At Madison College we have free workshops to help students and prospective students navigate the FAFSA process.

$15 million in support to 40,000 students
distributed by the Madison College Foundation


There are a number of scholarships available both through the Madison College Foundation and through external sources that will help with tuition costs and, unlike a student loan, don’t need to be repaid.

Scholarships through the Madison College Foundation are specifically for students attending Madison College.  For more information on these scholarships and to apply, visit the Madison College Foundation page.

External scholarships are not specific to Madison College and can be a great way to help offset your cost of attending school. A good place to start to search for these scholarships is our Ask Madison College page.

Emergency FundingThis fund helps with emergency-related expenses up to $500.00 with supporting documentation. Complete the Madison College Private Student Emergency Fund application for consideration.

Scholars of Promise

For low income graduating high school students, Scholars of Promise can help with tuition and fees as well as mentorship, academic support, help navigating financial aid programs, volunteer opportunities and transfer opportunities.

Veterans Educational Benefits

If you are a veteran or the spouse, dependent or survivor of a veteran, reservist or member of the National Guard, you may be eligible for federal or state Veteran Educational Benefits. If you have questions on your federal or state educational benefits, contact the Veteran Educational Benefits office.
