Financial Need

Financial need is determined by an analysis of the difference between a student's expected financial support and estimated total cost of attending MSTC (based on average student costs). The Financial Aid Office uses an average annual living budget to reflect anticipated costs for room and board, personal expenses, and transportation. These costs are in addition to the average costs for tuition, fees, books, and supplies, based on the number of credits taken.

Note: Tuition is based on a state-mandated tuition rate. Books and supplies are payable at the point-of-purchase and are not included on the tuition and fees bill. General education textbooks are available for rental, which may reduce estimated book fees. Some programs require students to purchase equipment or tools in addition to textbooks. Students should also plan for graduation fees, liability insurance, uniform service, testing, and other fees where applicable.
