Policy Statement

To qualify for financial aid, a student must be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen; be registered with Selective Service (if required); have financial need; be degree-, licensure-, or certificate-seeking; be making satisfactory academic progress; and not be in default on a federal education loan or owe a repayment on a federal grant.


Students who receive financial aid and withdraw officially or unofficially from MSU Denver prior to completion of a term may be required to repay a portion of financial aid and scholarships. All required financial aid repayments must be made to MSU Denver before the end of the current academic year or before additional Title IV funds can be disbursed to the student, whichever occurs first.
