FAQ

When do I have to have my application and deposit turned in?
There is not a date to have them turned in. MCC housing is based on first come, first served. We will not process your application until we have received your deposit. We are usually full during the fall term, so it is advised that you have your deposit and application in before June.

I want a one-bedroom apartment or a private room.
There are a limited number of one-bedroom apartments, so they are usually given to returning students who have requested them well in advance.  During the fall semester we are usually full, so we do not have any private rooms to give.

When do I have to pay for housing?
Full housing payment is due before you check in. Even if you think you are receiving grants or scholarships, you are still responsible to make sure these fees are paid prior to your arrival.

Will my scholarships and grants pay for housing?
How you pay for housing is your responsibility. You are responsible for meeting with Financial Aid and the Business Office for all financial information.

Cost for a semester sounds expensive to live Campus Housing.
