The 2024-2025 FAFSA is now available!  There are major changes to the application, so be sure to read the instructions carefully.  

  • QCC has extended our financial aid priority deadline to June 1, 2024 for students applying for financial aid for the Fall 2024 semester.
  • If you submitted a 2024-2025 FAFSA already, you can now update or correct your FAFSA, if needed.
  • QCC began to receive student FAFSAs from the US Department of Education in early April.
  • QCC communications for missing information letters began on Monday, May 6th.  Detailed information on missing information needed will be available within a few days on The Q. 
  • Award letters will be delayed.  We apologize for the inconvenience and will keep the community updated as we learn more.    

The 2023-2024 FAFSA is still available to complete to apply for Fall 2023, Spring 2024 & Summer 2024. The Financial Aid Office and MassEdCO both offer free appointments if you need assistance. 

MassReconnect is a program that started in Fall 2023 to fund free community college for adults 25 and older who do not already have a college degree. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity!

Spring refund checks will begin being mailed at the end of February and then weekly thereafter. All refund checks are mailed to the address on file at The College.

Important Information About Your Financial Aid

  • Once the Financial Aid Office receives your missing documents, it can take up to three business days before The Q  is updated.
  • QCC has partnered with ProVerifier+ to assist with the verification process. If your FAFSA was selected for verification, you may receive an email with separate portal access including instructions on how to complete verification with ProVerifier+. Information requested within the ProVerifier+ portal must be returned through the ProVerifier+ portal (not to QCC directly).

    Students can agree to their Credit Balance Authorization electronically. When you login to The Q, a pop up appears and you can either “agree” or “disagree” to allow QCC to apply your financial aid to all charges on your bill. You can agree even if you do not currently have financial aid, but may in the future as this agreement is active for the duration of your enrollment at QCC.



Financial Aid:

QCC's priority filing deadline is April 1st for the FALL semester and October 1st for the SPRING semester.  All students must complete a FAFSA to apply.  We will continue to process applications received after these deadlines.
