How to Apply
Eligibility: A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which uses a standard need analysis formula to calculate financial aid eligibility, must be completed each year. An expected family contribution (EFC) is calculated for each students based on their income, net worth, resources, family size, the number of family members attending post-secondary education and other factors. Financial aid is "packaged" as a combination of loans and, if applicable, scholarships to meet the financial need.
Application Procedures: To apply for financial aid at SIUSM, a FAFSA must be completed each year.
Application Results and Changes: A Student Aid Report (SAR) is provided to the student when the FAFSA is processed. The SAR should be reviewed for accuracy and completeness. If the SAR has errors, or you did not list SIUSM as a school choice, electronic corrections are made at the FAFSA web site by using the PIN and the Make Corrections link. When a corrected SAR is received, the student should retain it for his/her records, and forward a copy to the financial aid office at SIUSM.
Electronic Connection: Additional financial aid information is available from our web site. The student can obtain specific information about his/her own financial aid on SalukiNet. If you have questions and want to discuss your financial aid further, our office can be contacted via e-mail or by calling 217-545-2223.
