Financial Aid Process
Our Financial Aid staff is here to assist students applying for financial aid and determining all the possible funding sources available to them. Below is a quick guide to the first part of the financial aid process.
- Apply for Admission to Midway University. Completing the online application gets you started and in our system so we can get the vital information we need to assist you.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Complete the FAFSA online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/as soon as possible on or after January 1st to maximize your eligibility for state and federal financial aid. Be sure to list Midway’s school code, 001975. A FAFSA must be completed every year that a student is in college.
- Follow-up with any necessary paperwork and forms. Each year, certain FAFSAs are selected by the federal government for review in a process called verification. If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be notified on your Student Aid Report (SAR) and then by Midway’s Financial Aid Office by email regarding the necessary documentation you need to provide. Financial aid awards will not be made until verification complete, so be sure to respond to requests for information and meet deadlines.
- Talk to our Financial Aid Counselors. Let us know about any special circumstances you and your family may face. If you and your family experience any unusual circumstances that will have an impact on your finances such as divorce, death of a parent or loss of employment, please let us know. Contact our office for more information about how these types of circumstances could qualify you for review process called professional judgment
Once your application process is complete, then you will be ready to move on to My Aid Awards to manage your financial aid.
