Make an appointment with your dedicated financial aid counselor

Our goal is to help UMB students find the funds they need for their education. We believe all students should make a budget and think carefully before borrowing money. UMB financial aid programs are designed for students with academic potential and limited financial resources who need support to complete their education. About 80% of UMB students get help from our office. Each year, around $194 million in financial aid is given to eligible students from various sources like grants, scholarships, and loans. Aid is based on financial need, determined by FAFSA data and the cost of attendance. To get priority for institutional aid, complete your FAFSA by February 28 using school code 002104. Note: Awards may change due to funding, enrollment, or cost changes.
