The Office of Financial Aid's reception and advising area will be closed April 21st through August 1st and relocated to the Brody Neighborhood Engagement Center due to renovations.  The front reception area will be closed during construction and many advisors will be relocated during this time.

Our phones, e-mail, and social media will continue to be available during our regular business hours of 8:00am to 4:55pm Monday through Thursday and 9:00am to 4:55pm on Fridays.

We are looking forward to a new advising area that will provide more privacy for students and families coming in to discuss their educational financing options. Thank you for your patience as we improve this space.


After 40 years of dedication and service to Michigan State University our wonderful advisor Ann Graves will be retiring at the end of May 2014. We appreciate the guidance she has given to many of our students and staff. We wish her the best in her future adventures.


Have you checked out our website? We have a lot of great information about the costs of college, what types of aid are offered at MSU, and our process. Find out more at


The new and improved StuInfo has just been released for 2013-2014. The Office of Financial Aid worked with MSU IT Services focusing on the student experience and ways that we could communicate in detail where a student was at in the financial aid process. We think you'll love the improvements! 2014-2015 will be coming soon.

FA Status

We are working very hard to prepare financial aid award letters for 2014-2015.

Incoming Freshmen Award Letters

We are continuing to send out paper award letters to incoming freshmen.

Returning Student Award Letters

2014-2015 financial aid award letters will be available later in the spring. We will share a more specific date once it is available.

Parent PLUS Loan Applications

The 2014-15 Parent Plus Loan Application process will not be available until mid to late April. This will allow sufficient time for all payments to be available when needed for fall.

FAFSA Errors

We have sent out letters to approximately 1,000 students who have errors on their FAFSA that prevents us from processing their financial aid. The error could be an incorrect social security number that was typed into the FAFSA or the student used their federal pin to sign the FAFSA, but a parent did not. It is helpful to send in the requested information sooner than later so that we can clear up the FAFSA errors as quickly as possible and award aid to the student.
