Miller-Motte’s Financial Aid Eligibility Requirements
You might be surprised at how flexible today's financial aid eligibility requirements are, and how easy it is to receive help paying for your college expenses. At Miller-Motte, we are here to help you through every step.
For a student to receive scholarships, grants or student loans, there are certain requirements that must be met. You must meet at least one of the following financial aid eligibility requirements to qualify for aid:
- You must be a United States citizen
- Have a green card
- Have an arrival-departure record

If you are certain that you meet at least one of the above requirements, you can then determine if you meet the next set of requirements. To be qualified you must:
- Have a high school diploma, your GED or completed a High School education in a state approved homeschooling environment.
- Be enrolled in an eligible program
- If you’re a male between the ages of 18-25, you must register for the Selective Service
- Have a valid Social Security number or an Alien registration number
- Not be in default on a federal student loan
- Not owe a refund on a federal grant
- Use the money for school purposes only
- Maintain satisfactory academic progress
Do You Qualify? Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
One of the most important things you’ll need to complete in the financial aid process is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This free application is what most organizations use to determine a student’s need for financial assistance. There are no income limits for filing out the FAFSA–financial aid is available to those who qualify. To get a better understanding of the costs associated with college and to fill out the FAFSA, visit StudentAid.Ed.gov.
The FAFSA does require paperwork and a bit of patience to get through. If you are struggling with the process, we are here to help. Once you have all your documents together you can call our FAFSA Support Line at 866-842-1841. We will help you fill out your FAFSA over the phone in relatively short time.

Miller-Motte's Commitment to Responsible Borrowing
Miller-Motte College and Miller-Motte Technical College are dedicated to finding ways to help students make responsible borrowing decisions and keep students’ debts to manageable levels. Borrow only what you need to cover the cost of tuition, fees and books to ensure you are not taking on more debt than necessary. Remember, you are expected to repay your loan plus interest. Acquiring too much loan debt may be detrimental to your long-term financial health. The less you borrow, the less you will have to repay after graduation.
