Last Mile Completion (LMC) Scholarship

About the Scholarship

The Last Mile Completion Scholarship offers financial resources to students who left college with 13 or fewer credits hours remaining, to complete their first associate's degree.

Students must meet the following requirements:

  • Good academic standing at MDC (cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher)
  • Good financial standing at MDC (no financial obligations preventing enrollment)
  • Within 13 credit hours of completing their first degree at MDC
  • Enrolled in MDC within the past 8 years 
  • Completed the 2023-24 Federal Financial Aid Application (FAFSA) for summer and 2024-2025 for the Fall.
  • Required courses must be completed in three consecutive terms or less

How it works

  • The scholarship pays for 13 credits or less
  • The scholarship pays for in-state tuition/fees and is not disbursable in cash
  • Students are responsible for tuition/fees that exceed the in-state tuition of 13 credits
  • Funds will be applied at the in-state tuition rate after all other resources available to cover tuition and fees have been applied
  • High-Cost Special Fees such as the Physician Assistant, Aviation or Culinary Arts programs are not covered
