Morthland College is pleased to announce Federal Work Study (FWS) for Fall 2015. The Department of Education (DOE) approved these funds on January 29, 2015. The FWS Program provides funds for part-time employment to help needy students to finance the costs of postsecondary education. In order for a student to be eligible to receive these funds they must fill out a FAFSA.
Students Awarded FWS will be employed by Morthland College or Morthland Business Enterprises. The work the students do will help them in securing jobs upon graduation. Students who apply for FWS and are hired for these jobs have the opportunity to 'take a paycheck' or use those funds to help pay their bill. There are a limited number of these positions. If a student is interested they should contact the Dean of Students, Cathie Mieldezis, for more information. These funds will be available to both returning and new students at Morthland College.
Morthland College continues to grow and expand their curriculum to better serve its traditional students and non-traditional students alike. Beginning in the 2015 summer semester, M.C. will begin offering three degree programs in an online format. Students can now earn a Bachelors Degree completely online in Business Administration, Classics, and Biblical Studies. Enrollment will begin on Wednesday, April 1st with classes set to begin on Monday, May 4th.
All courses will be offered online with each class being completed over an 8 week period. Students will still have the opportunity to attend classes in the classroom, online, or a combination there of. This will be a great way for the working adult to advance their career while still working. Federal Student Aid is available for qualifying applicants.
