How EMCC Supports Our Students

Scholarships and grants are a great way to pay for school because they don't have to be paid back. At EMCC, it only takes one application to qualify for multiple District scholarships, but we also have EMCC scholarships and grants.

The first step to securing funds for school is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and we can help you with that, too.

With so many free ways to pay for college, there's never been a better time to get your degree or certificate!

EMCC's Computer Commons is available for free to all students. If you're worried about taking an online class, keep in mind that and we also offer loaner laptops to those who qualify. And we've got technicians on hand to help if you run into issues with any software available to EMCC students, including the Google suite of apps and Microsoft 365, with Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and more.

All of our student services are available in-person via walk-ins or by appointment as well as online. So you can submit your application online, chat with Financial Aid, or meet a tutor on Zoom.  No matter what your preferred method of interaction with our student support services team members, we are here to help!

We know it's difficult to focus on your school work when your basic needs aren't being met. That's why EMCC has an on-campus food pantry and clothing exchange available by appointment, one-time emergency funds for unexpected expenses, and partnerships with local companies to provide things such as grocery store gift cards and financial assistance for those in need. 

We have also collected a list of local resources for students and our community so you can get what you need quickly.

Remember that when things get tough, we're here to help.
