Applying for Financial Aid




Would You Like Virtual Assistance Completing the FAFSA?

We are excited to partner with the Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) in delivering financial aid services to our students.

You can schedule a virtual FAFSA appointment with the EOC throughout the duration of the COVID-19 shutdown!

  • EOC representatives will still be available to help MSU Denver students and families one-on-one with completing the FAFSA application via virtual appointments.

  • Contact the EOC by phone at: 303-352-8746

  • Or email to schedule a virtual FAFSA Completion 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.
