Veterans and Active Duty Military

Student Financial Assistance welcomes all veterans, active duty military and/or eligible family members to contact our office regarding your financial aid needs. Our staff is available to answer financial aid inquiries and assist with application processes for federal, state and institutional funding. We receive annual and regular training from associations such as the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), Missouri Association of Student Financial Aid Personnel (MASFAP), Missouri Department of Higher Education & Workforce Development (MDHEWD), and Federal Student Aid (FSA) in order to provide the best possible service regarding student loan counseling and other funding available under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.

Our highly qualified financial aid counselors can assist you with information about grants, institutional scholarships, or private and federal loan programs. They will work with you to understand all Title IV financial aid options, the differences between private and federal student loans, and answer any additional questions you may have regarding your specific circumstances. All students are assigned a qualified and knowledgeable financial aid counselor based on the first letter of your last name. To determine who your counselor is, please visit https://sfa.mst.edu/contact-us/counselors/.
