  • Please know that one or more of your scholarship award(s) MAY already reflect an ‘Accepted’ status in WebWorld if you previously returned your acceptance notification to the MSU Admissions Office and/or your Department of study, such as MSU History Department, Math/Science Department, etc.... 

 NEW for Fall 2013-Spring 2014: we are pleased to provide the Federal Shopping Sheet which is designed to simplify information for you with regards to MSU’s Cost of Attendance, type and amount of aid awarded to you, your out-of-pocket expenses, other financial aid options you may wish to investigate and MSU statistical information, such as MSU's graduation rate and median borrowing. 

  • Please know however that much of the information on the Shopping Sheet is incomplete as you have not submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (available at www.fafsa.gov) and/or you are not currently receiving grants or loans.  To access the Shopping Sheet, please refer to #3 above.
