Financial Assistance for Swift Transfer

MCC participates in the Financial Aid for Swift Transfer (FAST) program, a state of Texas program for dual credit financial aid. FAST-eligible dual credit students will incur no cost for dual credit coursework.

Dual credit students are eligible for benefits under the FAST program if they:

  1. are enrolled at a Texas public or charter school;
  2. are enrolled in an eligible dual credit course included in the annual dual credit agreement between MCC and the ISD; and
  3. were qualified for the national free/reduced-price lunch program in any of the four school years prior to the academic year in which they enroll in the dual credit course.

 As established through partnership agreements with area public/charter schools, dual credit expenses for FAST-eligible students will be addressed as follows.

  1. MCC will waive dual credit tuition and fees.
  2. The ISD/charter school will provide textbooks and/or required dual credit course materials.
  3. FAST-eligible dual credit students will have access to computers and Internet service in the MCC library and other publicly-accessible areas on campus.
  4. The ISD/charter school may provide student access to a computer and/or Internet connection at its discretion.

 There is no application form for the FAST program. MCC and the ISD/charter school will communicate necessary data once the student registers for a dual credit course. For more information about the dual credit program and enrollment process, visit the High School Pathways website.
