Tuition Table

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships helps students and their families finance an MSU Denver education. From applying for aid to managing unmet cost, the financial aid office provides guidance, resources and advice at every step along the way. All financial aid funds can be used for educational expenses, including living expenses, while a student is attending college. In order to receive financial aid, graduate students will need to provide information to the federal government via the FAFSA.

Students must complete a current FAFSA application to be considered for scholarships from MSU Denver and the Department of Nutrition as well as Graduate Assistant positions. Completing a FAFSA application does not require a student to accept any or all loans offered.
