When your financial aid package is completed
and ready to review, we will send you an email at
your Messiah College email account. This email will not contain your actual financial aid
package, but will give you instructions on how to access your award in our
secure web portal, MCSquare.
Once you have accessed your award notice in MCSquare, you will need to follow these steps:
1. Step One: Review Your Award
the Award Overview tab, learn how your financial aid is calculated and
what aid we can offer you.
2. Step Two: Complete Any Questions
the Resources/Additional Information tab you need to complete any
questions before you may continue to the next tab.
3. Step Three: Accept Your Terms and Conditions
the Terms and Conditions tab, read and accept the Terms & Conditions
for receiving aid. No aid (merit or need based) will be applied toward your
bill until you have accepted these terms and conditions.
4. Step Four: Accept Your Financial Aid Award
the Accept Award Offer tab you need to Accept or Decline any financial
aid that is in Offered Status. To change an award that is already in Accepted
or Declined status or make changes to an individual term amount, please contact
5. Step Five: Review Special Messages Related To
the Special Messages tab you learn about the next steps in the Financial
Aid process and important information specific to your aid. On this tab
you can also complete the What Do I Owe worksheet to
calculate your actual out of pocket costs after your financial aid.
