The mission of the Midwestern State University Financial Aid Office (FAO) is to remove the financial barriers which could potentially prevent a student from pursuing higher education. The FAO staff is dedicated to providing a customer-friendly environment to students, parents, the university community and the public at large and subscribes to exemplary standards of professional conduct in performing all duties and responsibilities. 

The FAO staff promotes effective communication, timeliness, knowledge and problem-solving skills to ensure students/parents have a positive and successful experience with the financial aid process. MSU provides assistance with the financial aid process by hosting presentations to current students, interested high schools, community organizations and clubs. MSU ensures compliance with federal and state guidelines for all financial aid programs for the university and fully utilizes the maximum federal, state, institutional and local funds available to our students.
