Financial Aid

Financial aid refers to a wide variety of programs available to help students and parents pay for college. It is a means to help you finance your education when your family and personal resources are not adequate to meet the total cost of attending school. It is important that you understand all of the financial aid options available. Financial aid makes education possible for those who can't afford it otherwise.

The basic steps of the financial aid process are the same for everyone looking for federal help in paying for their education. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year that you attend college. Mountain State College can help you with this process! Mountain State College's OPEID (Federal School Code) is: 005008
