Financial Aid

The mission of the Student Financial Aid Office is to provide fair, equitable, and unbiased service to students seeking financial aid. This mission supports the mission of the University by helping students find financial means that enable them to enroll in and complete their academic programs. The office guarantees delivery of federal and state financial assistance to students within rules and regulations established by the respective departments of education. The Student Financial Aid Office coordinates all federal, state, and institutional financial assistance, including grants, scholarships, student employment, and student loans.

"With changes to the FAFSA, the award process is later than usual. It can be stressful. I can assure you, the SMSU Financial Aid staff takes the time to review every application to prepare the best possible financial aid package for every student. If you have questions about the FAFSA and your Financial Aid application, please reach out to us. We're here to help you through the process."
