Paying for college

Financial aid

An affordable college, made more affordable:

Anticipating what your education is going to cost and understanding how to get the financial aid for which you are eligible is something with which we can help. We also want to make how you pay for college as clear as possible. The earlier you apply to financial aid the better.

More than half of all M State students have a tuition-free experience through grants and scholarships that don't have to be paid back. M State's friendly and knowledgeable business services and financial aid teams are ready to help you.

M State's FAFSA code is 005541
