The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a simple online process to identify what federal and state grants, loans, and work study dollars you are eligible for.

At MSUM, 87% of degree-seeking students receive financial aid, which means your chances of receiving financial aid are great!

WHO: You and your parent/guardian

WHAT: the 2019-2020 FAFSA application

WHERE: any computer, tablet, or smart phone available to you

WHEN: ASAP! The FAFSA opened on Oct. 1, but there’s still plenty of time to get yours in to MSUM to see what aid you are eligible for

HOW: Set aside 25 minutes with your parent/guardian, have your tax information from 2017 available, and begin the application at

Once you complete the application, you will be able to send your information to up to 10 schools. List MSUM as one of those schools using school code 002367 and then celebrate for finishing the task!
