Applying for Aid

Once you have applied to the University of Missouri and have determined your eligibility for financial aid, you can begin applying for all types of aid, including scholarships, loans, grants and employment.

Applying for aid begins with filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). After your FAFSA has been processed, the Office of Student Financial Aid will notify about your eligibility for financial aid. The financial aid offer letter includes information about how to accept aid.
