Completing the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only application required when applying for federal, state, and institutional aid at Messenger College. For important information and tips on submitting the FAFSA, visit Filling Out the FAFSA and watch the video How to Fill Out the FAFSA. The Messenger College school ID code for the FAFSA is 030926. Enter this number when prompted.

 

The Department of Education requires all college students to complete Entrance Counseling. This is to make sure you understand all your rights and responsibilities of student loans. You can complete your entrance counseling at www.studentloans.gov

 

You will also need to complete a Master Promissory Note if you have not done so in the last 10 years. This is a promise to pay anything you borrow from the government. It can also be found at www.studentloans.gov

Cost of Attendance

Net Price Calculator

The financial aid office uses an estimate of direct and indirect costs to determine how much financial aid a student may be eligible for. Direct costs include tuition, fees, some books and supplies, and institutional housing. Indirect costs include estimates of other living expenses, transportation, and personal expenses. Examples of the cost of attendance estimates used can be found by using the net price calculator.
