Types of Financial Aid
Federal Pell Grant
A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or professional degree. Pell Grants provide a foundation of financial aid to which other aid may be added.
Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program provides on-campus jobs for students needing financial aid for their educational expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the students’ course of study. For a listing of available positions, please visit the Career Planning and Placement Office in the Student Success Center.

The Monetary Award Program (MAP) provides grants that do not need to be repaid. The award does not cover audited, noncredit or continuing education courses or lab and user fees. Students can apply by completing the FAFSA and listing as the first choice any MAP-approved Illinois post-secondary institution. Funding for the MAP grant is limited. To ensure full-year consideration for an award, apply early. MAP grants can be applied only toward in-district tuition and student activity fees.
Grants are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need-those with the lowest Expected Family Contribution (EFC) numbers. Federal Pell Grant recipients receive priority for FSEOG awards.
The Chicagoland Regional College Program (CRCP) offers a solution to the high costs associated with earning your college degree or career certificate. Through the CRCP, students attend college part-time at Morton College and work part-time at UPS in Hodgkins, Illinois. CRCP students receive paid tuition, books and fees, transportation allowances and can qualify for housing allowances and academic bonuses while earning a paycheck.
