Graduate Student Applying for Financial Aid
Financial Aid Application Process for Graduate Students
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Submit Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after October 1. The
MSUM School Code is 002367. The FAFSA is based on the previous year's income. Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer tax information to the FAFSA.
Graduate students are independent for financial aid purposes and not required to provide parental data on the FAFSA.
Complete your admission as a degree-seeking graduate student or a continuing graduate student in good academic standing at MSUM.
Submit additional information or documentation when requested.
Awards are based on full-time enrollment (8 credits) in graduate-level courses. Awards are reduced if enrollment is less than 8 credits.
A minimum of 6 graduate credits is required for campus work study or loans.
If your financial situation changes, notify the
Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid to request a review of your file. If you are already repaying a student loan, check with your lender(s) regarding “in-school” deferment of loan payments. MSUM automatically provides enrollment data to all guarantee agencies to enable lenders to determine deferment eligibility.
