Financial Aid Tips and Events

Much has changed with Federal Financial Aid over the past decade and as we all know much as changed at MGSC over the past few years.  We thought it would be helpful to provide our faculty and staff just a basic financial aid tips sheet to help educate us all on some of those changes.  This information will also be shared with our students and placed on the Financial Aid webpage and our Knights Questions portal.

In addition, if you or your department would like a representative from Financial Aid to come and do a training session or a Q/A specific to your program and students, please contact Lee Ann Kirkland at leeann.kirkland@mga.edu.

Finally, attached is an information sheet about events that will be hosted on all five campuses in March to assist college bound students and their families to apply for Federal aid.  Please help us encourage our current students to also get ahead now for 2015-2016!  Now is the time for them to start filling out their FAFSA for next year!
