Students with Children
Students with children have unique challenges and needs. This page is designed to help those students find a way to cover some of their additional costs.
The first step is to apply for financial aid by filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This provides our office with the basic data we need to assess your ability to pay for your education and support your family.
Once MSU has received your FAFSA data, we will make an initial aid offer. It is important to note that this initial offer only takes into account your expenses as a student - it does not cover family expenses or other costs such as day care. To cover these additional expenses, you must talk to a financial aid advisor about filing a Special Condition Application.
