5 Quick Transfer Steps

1. If you have already filled out a FAFSA/CASFA, please make sure to add MSU Denver’s school code: 001360

2. Cancel ALL pending aid at your other school.

3. Remember: Financial aid eligibility is limited depending on what you received at your other school.

4. Have you had your credits evaluated? Your academic standing for loans will be based on the amount of credits you are able to transfer to MSU Denver.

5. Understand your Transfer Monitor Hold:

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will place a Transfer Monitoring Hold on your account. This hold will expire in 7 days. This is a hold that must be placed on each student’s financial aid account at least 7 days prior to the beginning of a semester. During this time, our institution will upload current information from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). It will include up-to-date student loan history and allow us to see if you have received financial aid at any other institution within this academic year. The 7 day hold must be placed on your account even if you did NOT receive financial aid at another institution. The hold will automatically expire after the 7 day period and CANNOT be removed before the 7 day period.
