Filing the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form allows students to request federal grants, work-study, and loans, all in one application. Additionally, many state, institutional, and third-party funds rely on FAFSA results to determine student eligibility. Despite what you may think, filing the FAFSA is always worth your time.

To get started, students will need to create or have access to a previously created FSA ID and password. Applicants will also want to collect any documents that may be needed to complete the form.

The FASFA can be completed online at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. Alternatively, FAFSA filers can also download the myStudentAid App in the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Remember, you need to include Missouri State University’s federal school code on your FAFSA for your results to be sent to our institution. Our federal school code is 002503.
