Financial Aid Application Process
How to Apply
Completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in determining eligibility for federal student aid. You can complete your FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov utilizing the Marian University school code 001821.
The Office of Financial Aid will receive the results from your FAFSA once the application has been processed.
New students accepted in MU-COM who have completed their FAFSA and paid their seat deposit will receive a financial aid award letter. Once an award determination has been made, you will receive an e-mail from the Office of Financial Aid with instructions on how to access your financial aid award letter through the CAMS student portal. The financial aid award letter will indicate the amount of your Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford loan. All Stafford loans will be awarded at full loan eligibility. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the Office of Financial Aid of any outside resource (i.e. parental support, outside scholarship).
Once you access your financial aid award letter in the CAMS student portal, the next step is to accept, reduce, or decline your awards.
To apply for additional financial aid assistance to supplement your Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford loan, you may apply for the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS loan. You can complete the Graduate PLUS application online at www.studentloans.gov. The Office of Financial Aid will receive notification of all completed Graduate PLUS applications.
All students new to borrowing Federal Direct Loans at Marian University are required to complete Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) before Marian University can receive the first disbursement of any Federal Direct Loan. You can complete the Entrance Counseling and MPN online at www.studentloans.gov. A MPN must be on file for each borrowed loan type.
