We will host a FAFSA Parent Night on Monday, October 11, 2021 at 6:00 PM in the library. The Waco Foundation will be on campus to present parents with FAFSA and TASFA information and work on completing applications with parents. 


MAC College Money Program
MAC Program makes sure that finding money for college is not a problem for anyone in McLennan County who wants to get a degree


The MAC Grant is a “last dollar” grant, the MAC Grant awards up to $1,000 per semester if no other grants or scholarships are available to cover your tuition at MCC or TSTC. This is also an opportunity that turns in to a $5,000 scholarship if pursuing college after the 2 years at any university.  Furthermore, Baylor provides full tuition scholarships for the 3 MAC Scholarship recipients who intend to transfer to Baylor that have the highest GPA’s.

MAC Grant Application (Due May 1) if dual credit hours are under 60 hours
MAC Scholarship (Due Dec. 1) if you will complete 60 hours upon graduating high school
