Financial Aid Online Award System

On April 23, 2018 the Online Financial Aid Award System received several security enhancements. As a result of these enhancements your password has been reset. When logging in to the Online Financial Aid Award website please use the following password schema:
  • First letter of first name in lower case

  • First letter of last name in upper case

  • Birthdate (mmddyyyy)

  • Exclamation point

Example: John Smith with a birth date of 09/01/1998 has a password of jS09011998!

After logging in for the first time you will be required to change your password. The new password must meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum length of 9 characters
  • Contain at least one uppercase (A-Z) and one lowercase (a-z) letter
  • Contain at least one number (0-9)
  • Contain at least one special character (!@#$%^&*)

After 5 failed login attempts you will be locked out of your Online Financial Aid Award System account. If this happens you will need to contact the Financial Aid Office to have your account unlocked

 This password policy change will not impact any other PawPass systems such as Blackboard, Email, and the Bookstore system.

 If you have any questions or need assistance please contact the Financial Aid Office. Thank you,

 MCC Financial Aid
