WSU will process your financial aid

WSU will process your federal financial aid application and award federal aid based on your combined enrollment and the information you supply on your FAFSA. 

A student can only receive financial aid for transferrable courses that are applicable to the student’s certificate or degree program.

The financial aid you receive will be used to pay your tuition and fees for courses you take at Wayne State University. Remaining funds will be refunded to you to use to pay your charges for the courses you attend at Macomb Community College.

Satisfactory academic progress

Macomb Community College will share enrollment and academic information with WSU. Satisfactory Academic Progress will be monitored according to the policies at WSU. Credits attempted and earned at MCC will be used in the calculation to determine your pace and timeframe status. Only the grades you earn at WSU are used to determine your GPA status.

TIP program

WSU is a TIP Phase II school. You will not be able to use TIP Phase I benefits as a student in the Wayne Advantage-Macomb program.

Scholarship and WSU grant eligibility

In order to receive a freshman WSU scholarship, you must enroll for at least 12 or more credits at WSU your first semester. After your first semester, you may receive an award proportional to your enrollment at WSU. If you are admitted as a transfer student, you may receive an award proportional to your enrollment at WSU.

Scholarships awarded by one institution may only be applied to tuition, fees and other expenses at the institution that made the award. The combined passed hours and the WSU cumulative GPA will be used to determine eligibility for renewal. Eligibility will not be extended beyond the original terms of the award.
