Links to Useful Financial Aid Information

The MAFAA website is maintained primarily as a resource for the Minnesota financial aid community. We understand, however, that students and parents occasionally reach our website looking for answers regarding financial aid. We have created this page as a resource for basic financial aid information.

We strongly encourage you to contact the financial aid professionals at the school you are interested in attending. These financial aid professionals will assist you in attaining your educational goals.
