The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at Montana State University Billings provides advice and financial assistance to students. Although families and students are expected to make a maximum effort to meet the costs of education, financial aid is available to fill the gap between family resources and educational expenses.
The amount of financial aid awarded is generally a combination of grants, loans, and employment. The award is based on the evaluated financial need of the student. The estimated financial need is the difference between the cost of attending MSU Billings and the ability of the student and/or family to contribute to those education costs as determined by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
To apply for financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form should be completed on the web at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Early application is essential. Priority awarding will be given to those students who have a complete file in our office on March 1. Students should allow up to two months if they file a paper application and two weeks for processing the web application. The FAFSA must be filed annually.
Some students will be required to submit tax returns and other documents to verify the information submitted on their FAFSA application. The University must verify all applications selected by the FAFSA processor.
