How to Apply for Financial Aid
To apply for federal and state grants, loans and/or work-study, as well as to receive
a financial aid award package from Mount Mary University, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year that you need aid.
The FAFSA is available January 1 each year. We strongly encourage you to file the FAFSA by our March 1 priority deadline to receive the most amount of aid possible.
Here’s how you can apply for financial aid:
- Apply for a federal student aid PIN. This PIN serves as your electronic signature. You will use this PIN every year and you will use it to access various federal financial aid websites. Your parents also will need a PIN (if you are a dependent).
- File your FAFSA. Mount Mary University’s FAFSA code is: 003869 and to file the FAFSA, you will need to have your social security number; your and your parents’ most recent federal income tax returns, W-2s and other records of money earned; bank statements and records of investments (if applicable); records of untaxed income (if applicable) and your federal student aid PIN. If able, you may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to help automatically fill in your tax data on the FAFSA after taxes have been filed.
- Review your FAFSA Student Aid Report. You’ll want to review your report for accuracy and update it as needed.
After you file the FAFSA, confirm your admission application status at Mount Mary. If you have not yet applied to Mount Mary, apply for admission online. See more information about what to do after you apply for financial aid.
