Financial Aid and Scholarships

financialaidEducation is an investment in your future, and we know that the investment can get expensive. But here’s the good news: Every year, the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid office provides more than $83 billion in assistance to millions of students and their families. This aid can be used to pay for tuition and fees, books, supplies and more.

Better yet, this federal service is provided free of charge, and any Miami Dade College Financial Aid Office can answer your questions and help you fill out the application at no cost.

You might be eligible for assistance, but you won’t know until you apply. It all starts with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)


You may qualify for some of the $7.5 million scholarships MDC expects to award this year. One of MDC’s most coveted scholarships is the Honors College Fellows Award, which covers the full cost of in-state tuition, fees and books. Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program is available to eligible students and the American Dream Scholarship covers up to the full-tuition rate for qualified students. 

A college education doesn't have to be expensive. At Miami Dade College, we believe opportunity changes everything. Check our the list of scholarship opportunities and see what you might qualify for.
