MACU IS GOING GREEN
As part of our commitment to the community, we are doing what we can to reduce our footprint. Beginning February 1, 2020, we will no longer be mailing paper notices for transfers, overdraft protection, and nonsufficient funds. In addition, ODP and NSF fees will be updated to $35 per item.
College is expensive, and it can be overwhelming trying to pay for it. That’s why we developed our MACU scholarship program.
The deadline to apply is February 26.
