Once the subject has been successfully challenged, the student will be given credit for the subject. Once credit has been granted, the program cost will be adjusted accordingly.
Formerly enrolled students of MTTC who are requesting re-entry within five (5) years from their last date of attendance, upon acceptance, may be given credit for all units successfully completed (maintaining a grade of 70% or above and an attendance record of at least eighty (80) percent.)
Articulation Agreement – Transfer of Credit Hours

FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE
There are many different types of aid available which include grants, loans, scholarships, and Veteran Benefits.
Federal Pell Grant (PELL)
Pell grants are the foundation of federal student financial assistance to which aid from other federal nonfederal sources might be added. These grants are generally awarded to undergraduate students based upon financial eligibility determined by your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (www.fafsa.ed.gov). The amount of your Federal Pell Grant depends on your cost of attendance, expected family contribution, enrollment status (full or part-time) and whether you attend for a full academic year or less. The award amounts can change yearly. Unlike loans, grants are not repaid unless, for example, you withdraw from school prior to the planned program completion date. For more information, visit www.studentaid.gov. To become eligible and to maintain eligibility, a student must be enrolled and meet or exceed Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) including attendance minimums.
Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant
A student whose parent or guardian was a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and died as a result of service performed in Iraq or Afghanistan after September 11, 2001 may be eligible to receive the Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant. Additional student eligibility requirements include:
• Must be ineligible for Federal Pell Grant due only to having less financial need than is required to receive Pell funds, and
• Be under 24 years old, or
• Enrolled in college at least part-time at the time of the parent’s or guardian’s death.
The grant award is equal to the amount of a maximum Pell Grant for the award year, not to exceed the cost of attendance for the award year.
Federal Direct Loans
Student loans, unlike grants, are borrowed money (monies) that must be repaid with interest. Loans made through this program are referred to as Direct Loans. Eligible students and parents borrow directly from the U.S. Department of Education. For more information, visit www.studentaid.gov.
Parents of dependent students can borrow from the PLUS Loan program. The terms and conditions of this type of loan include a requirement that the applicant not have an adverse credit history, a repayment period that begins on the date of the last disbursement of the loan and a fixed interest rate of 7.9 percent for the Direct Loan. For more information, visit www.studentaid.gov.
Workforce Investment Act – Texas
The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) combines federally funded job training programs in Texas into a “workforce development” system that was developed to consolidate, coordinate, and improve employment, training, literacy, and vocational rehabilitation programs.

• www.finaid.org/military/combatpay.phtml can be a source of confusion on the FAFSA.
• www.finaid.org/military/veteranstatus.phtml is not necessarily the same as veteran status for VA purposes.
