Financial Aid:

The MS in PSC program does not offer scholarships, assistantships, or grants to incoming students.

As a starting point, financial aid assistance requires completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Visit the FAFSA website to complete and submit this form to the U.S. Department of Education. The best potential source of financial aid is the Federal Stafford Loan, which relies on students' completion of the FAFSA.

Please contact the UMB Student Financial Assistance and Education office with questions or for additional financial aid information.
