Every day students are looking for ways to finance their education. Almost half of Moraine Park’s program students receive some type of financial assistance, and our Financial Aid staff helps make the process easy.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) season begins Oct. 1 each year so students are encouraged to complete that document as soon as possible.

Contact us: financialaid@morainepark.edu, (920)924-3207, or 1-800-472-4554, TTY/VP: Use Relay/VRS.

Be sure to include your Student ID Number (N#) if you have one when emailing or calling our office.

Eligibility Requirements

To be offered federal, state, or institutional funds administered by Moraine Park’s Financial Aid Office, you must:

  • File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year.
  • Be admitted to MPTC in an eligible associate degree or technical diploma program (certificates and apprenticeships are not eligible). In general, all Associate Degree and Technical Diplomas are eligible for financial aid, except:
    • Bookkeeper
    • EMT Basic
    • EMT Advanced
    • Nursing Assistant
    • Some programs on campus are offered through other Wisconsin technical colleges. This means you may be taking your classes here at Moraine Park but you apply for admissions AND financial aid through a different technical college. If you are admitted into one of the following programs, you must apply for financial aid at the school listed.
    • Agribusiness Science & Technology: Lakeshore Technical College (009194)
    • Wind Energy Technology: Lakeshore Technical College (009194)
  • Have a high school diploma, General Education Development (GED), or High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED).
  • Be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen (permanent resident).
  • If born male, be registered with Selective Service (this applies only to State of Wisconsin-controlled grants).
  • Have a valid Social Security Number.
  • Not be in default on a student loan. Review your federal loans at https://studentaid.gov/
  • Not owe an overpayment on any federal (Title IV) aid.
  • Meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standards as defined by the Financial Aid Office.
  • Not be delinquent on court-ordered child support and/or maintenance (this applies only to State of Wisconsin-controlled grants).
  • Certify that you will use student aid only for educational purposes.
  • Students with criminal convictions may be eligible, but must work with their correctional institution and the MPTC College Navigator for further eligibility. Federal law requires students to inform the Financial Aid Office of their incarceration.

The following program and course combinations calculate lesser credits for financial aid purposes: Electricity (College 101, Oral and Interpersonal Communication, Intermediate Algebra with Applications), Electrical Power Distribution (College 101, Introduction to Electrical Substations), Welding (College 101), Gas Utility Construction and Service (College 101), Cosmetology (College 101), and CNC/Tool and Die Technologies (College 101).  If you enroll in less than full time for the semester you select to take this in, it will impact the amount of aid you are eligible to receive.  Please work with your advisor to create the course schedule that best meets your needs.

Recommended Time to Apply

Priority deadline is April 15 for the upcoming school year.  You can, however, apply as soon as October 1 for the start of the following school year. Though the FAFSA application is available online between Oct. 1 and June 30 of the following year, you want to apply as soon as possible since there are a few federal student aid programs that have limited funds. Admittance into an aid eligible program is required before Moraine Park will begin processing your FAFSA.
