Financial Aid


The goal of Missouri Western State University’s Financial Aid Office is to provide students and their families with a professional, unbiased approach to making the dream of higher education a reality. Our objectives include helping students attain a higher education by providing eligible students the maximum amount of financial assistance possible from all available sources, while keeping student loan debt as low as possible.

The Financial Aid Office belongs to the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA). We adhere to a code of ethics requiring us to be “committed to removing financial barriers for those who wish to pursue postsecondary learning.” In adhering to this code of ethics, our student aid professionals make every effort to seek and recommend the best alternatives for our students.
