As of January 24 2022, MSU has offered


a total amount of over


in financial aid for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022!


From Friday, December 24th through Monday, January 3rd, our office will not be hosting in-person meetings, or responding to phone calls and emails. We will return to normal business operations on Tuesday, January 4th. From all of us at the Office of Financial Aid, we hope you have a safe and a happy holiday season!

Students who had federal loan repayment paused during the Covid-19 national emergency should be aware that repayment will resume on May 1, 2022. Loan servicers and the Department of Education have communicated and will continue to communicate with borrowers but we are posting similar information on our website for your use.

Of primary concern is the student's contact information and confirming it is updated with the loan servicer to ensure information is received as soon as it is sent by the servicer. Second, borrowers should work with their servicer on repayment plan options, possible other loan deferments or forbearance.
