The FAFSA application is generally available each year starting on Oct. 1. However, the 2024-25 FAFSA will be available in December of 2023. You may complete the FAFSA online at studentaid.gov. Be sure to indicate that you want your results forwarded to Missouri Western State University, school code 002490.
Once complete, your FAFSA application is submitted to the U.S. Department of Education and the information reported is used to determine your eligibility for need-based financial aid (Pell Grant, SEOG, Access Missouri, federal student loans, federal workstudy, and Missouri Western competitive scholarships).
