Financial Aid Office

FAFSA, Verification & Financial Aid Offer

The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To file the FAFSA, you must be a U.S. citizen or national, a permanent resident, or an eligible non-citizen. If you are not, please see "Eligibility for Specific Populations" section below. 

Once the FAFSA is submitted to St. Cloud State University (SCSU) and you are admitted to SCSU, the Financial Aid Office will review the results, request additional information if needed, and prepare either a Preliminary Financial Aid Offer or an Official Financial Aid Offer Notification. You will check this informaiton on your Financial Aid Status on e-Services
