What to expect...

Once you've submitted the FAFSA form your information will be sent to UMSL's financial aid team, where they will review your financial aid eligibility. You will receive email notifications that will confirm your successful FAFSA submission and alert you of any additional tasks that need to be completed. Once all required tasks are complete we will alert you via email that your offer letter is ready to review in MyView (UMSL's student portal). New students will also receive a copy of their offer letter in the mail. After you've reviewed your financial aid offer you will log into MyView to accept and/or decline any institutional scholarships and loans that you'd like to use to help cover your student account balance. If there is a remaining balance after your financial aid has been accepted the first spring due date is January 10. Learn more about making payments towards your student account balance.
