Financial Aid and Scholarships

To help defray the cost of the program, you may apply for a Federal Direct Stafford or Direct PLUS Loan.  Eligibility for the Federal Direct Loans is based on need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Students receiving Federal Loans are required to take a minimum of 4.5 credits per semester.  To determine eligibility for these loans, please complete the FAFSA online  www.fafsa.gov.  Some applicants will be required to submit additional information.  We encourage all students to use the Financial Aid Student Tracking System (FASTS) to learn the status of your financial aid file.  For more information click here

Scholarships are also available for MAAA students beginning with their first semester. Requests for scholarships for new students should be made at the time of applications. Funds are primarily awarded on basis of merit. 

Students should also check with their employers regarding possible financial assistance.

Please note that the cost of on-campus residency room and board is not covered by financial aid and that international students are not eligible for financial aid.  The fall semester begins on the first day of the on-campus residency and continues through the end of the off-campus portion.
