Applying for Aid
Initial Process for Financial Aid
New students and Returning Students who have not attended for at least one semester or have withdrawn in the current semester must apply for admission and be accepted to Methodist University (MU) as a degree seeking student.
Common Application Errors
Mistakes are easily made when filling out the FAFSA application if students and/or parents do not understand the instructions fully. Some errors will require an applicant to start over delaying the processing of your FAFSA at the federal level, and thus delaying the award process at the university level. The Office of Financial Aid has compiled a list of common errors made on the FAFSA to help eliminate common mistakes and make the FAFSA application experience as easy as possible.
Students must meet all eligibility requirements to be considered for any Title IV federal financial aid programs and/or need-based aid from Methodist University.
The primary responsibility of financing an undergraduate college education rests with students and their parents. For graduate students, the responsibility rests with students and, if applicable, their spouses. Eligibility for financial aid is based on a formula for determining financial need.
