Grants & Sponsorships
TEACH Grant Program

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to education students, up to a total of $16,000. These students must agree to serve as full‐time teachers in a high‐needs field for four years after their degree in a public or private elementary school, secondary school, or educational service agency that serves students from low‐income families.

Employer Sponsorship

Federal Aid

Federal undergraduate financial aid will use your tax returns to assess your eligibility for federal subsidized and unsubsidized loans and grants as you return for your bachelor’s degree. 

Students who are U.S. Citizens, or permanent residents, are generally eligible for federal financial aid if they do not default on any federal loans and have not hit the federal borrowing limit of $57,500 for undergraduate programs.

Students who are ready to start the financial aid process may start by applying for student loans by completing the FAFSA and entering Midland’s Title IV Code: 002553.

Enrolling in the program requires a nonrefundable $250 enrollment deposit, which holds your seat in the incoming class. This deposit is applied to the first-term balance.

All payments should be submitted by the first day of the term. If a student believes they are going to miss the deadline, we ask that they please contact us at before the start of the term. 

Please, note: Any student account balance will preclude registration in future terms.
