The Missouri Western financial aid program is designed to assist degree seeking students in their pursuit of a higher education.
The Financial Aid Office understands financial aid in all of its varied forms. The staff will answer questions and help you plan the best package of financial aid to meet our students’ needs. Graduate students are eligible for Scholarships, Graduate Assistantships and Student Loans. To be eligible for scholarships or assistantships a student must be degree seeking, enrolled in at least six graduate hours per semester, and be a student in good standing (not on probation). Financial assistance will not cover undergraduate courses (400 level or below) taken as a graduate student.
