At MSU, nearly 94 percent of our undergraduate students receive some type of financial aid. Your first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have your results sent to MSU (FAFSA Code: 001976). These results will help us determine whether you qualify for need-based financial aid, which includes grants, loans and federal student employment/work-study.

Applying for financial aid can be confusing. That’s why we have helpful financial aid counselors available to make this process as stress-free as possible. 

Financial aid helps students and families meet educational expenses that cannot be met through their own resources. It can be either need-based or non-need-based. The results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) along with the cost-of-education determines whether or not a student has financial need.
