Financial Aid


During the summer semester an additional Pell Grant is available to students who would like to accelerate their degree and enroll in at least 6 hours. Students can be eligible for additional Pell even though they may have received all their regular Pell during the previous fall and spring semesters. Call our Lion Central offices at GT 662.243.1920 or Scooba 662.476.5079 to learn more.


East Mississippi Community College believes that qualified students should not be denied an education because of financial need. To meet this commitment, EMCC offers assistance to students from a number of financial aid programs -- including scholarships, grants, loans and campus employment.

The financial aid award process

The financial aid award process at EMCC begins each year on April 1 for the following school year, which begins in mid-August. As student applications are completed, awards are made on a “first-in, first-out” basis. We encourage students to make application as soon as possible after Jan. 1 of each year.  Funds are limited in some programs; the earlier students apply, the better the chance students will receive funds from programs for which they are eligible.
