  • We are excited to welcome the TRIO Equal Opportunity Center (EOC) as a new partner in delivering financial aid services to our students. EOC representatives will be available to help students and families one-on-one with completing the FAFSA application.  Students may walk-in or contact us at 303-556-8593 to schedule an appointment.



It is important to file your FAFSA early as we may request additional information from you and/or your parents in order to complete your financial aid file.

MSU will award funds to students who have applied for aid, completed their file and meet all eligibility requirements. The amount of financial aid you are offered could depend, in part, on the date you completed your financial aid file. Early applicants have a better chance of being offered more types of financial aid depending on need.

All admitted MSU Denver students will receive an acknowledgment email once we have received their FAFSA each year. Be sure to check your MSU Student Hub for important updates.
