The same financial aid and scholarships that are available to students in the fall are also available to students who begin classes during the spring semester. The application deadline for the spring semester is Fri., Jan. 13, 2017.

“Students who graduate from high school in December are highly motivated, academically strong students who are a great fit for MC,” said Cyndi Sweet, executive director for admissions and financial aid at Maryville College.
