Maryland residents should apply for these state aid programs from the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC). Both students and parents
must be residents of Maryland. Many MHEC aid programs require a FAFSA by March 1, and many also require you to login into their MDCAPS system to complete additional MHEC applications.
After you file your FAFSA, if your FAFSA gets selected for verification, please follow
the Verification Instructions to complete the process as quickly as possible. We can't offer aid to selected students
until verification is complete.
