Fall Bills

Beginning July 25th, Fall 2015 billing statements will be created. Right now is a great time to ensure that you have submitted all required documents to our office for review. Some students are selected for a process called "verification". This is required by the federal government and the purpose is to compare the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the student's and/or parent's federal tax return to ensure the FAFSA information is accurate.

Typically, if additional documents are required you will be able to see this in StuInfo under "Financial Aid - Check Your Aid" in the "FAFSA Status" or "Required Documents" tabs. Once documents are submitted you can watch their progress by viewing the "Review Status" tab. Documents are reviewed on a first come, first serve basis.

MSU Orientation

New students and parents will be visiting campus soon for orientation. If you have a financial aid question you would like to discuss in-person we offer walk-in appointments from 9:00am to 4:45pm Monday through Friday. Please note that we tend to be less busy from 9:00am to 11:00am. Our office is located on the 2nd floor of the Student Services Building.

Changes to Spartan Advantage

Beginning Fall 2015 all students receiving Spartan Advantage (SPAD) are required to sign a Spartan Advantage Agreement Form and return it to the Office of Financial Aid. The Spartan Advantage award will not be applied to any student's account until our office receives a signed copy of the program agreement. Spartan Advantage recipients will receive the agreement form in the mail (typically to their permanent mailing address). They can also print the agreement form, sign it, and return it to the Office of Financial Aid.

Community ID and Guest Access

Beginning June 1st guests who have not updated their account and created a Community ID will no longer be able to log into StuInfo. Here is a video on how to set-up your Community ID: https://vimeo.com/channels/msufinaid/76901685
