Federal Aid Processes

Application Process

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. The FAFSA is available online at https://studentaid.gov.

When the FAFSA is processed, information is sent electronically to the Student Aid Office where the file is evaluated to determine eligibility for federal aid. If additional information is needed, notifications will be sent via UM email with further explanation. Please respond immediately, or aid may be delayed.
