Financial Aid

Making Your Education Affordable

There are a variety of financial aid options available to students. Eligible students can apply for federal and state student aid, academic and athletic scholarships, student loans and student work-study. Between 80 and 85 percent of our students receive some type of financial assistance. Students are encouraged to file early for federal financial aid by completing the FAFSA. These are available in the counseling office at most high schools or by calling the university Financial Aid Office at (314) 340-3500. We recommend filing in February or March (for the following fall) of each year you are in college.
