Basics of Financial Aid

Most families have a genuine concern about affording a college education. That’s why MSOE is committed to assisting with the entire financial aid process-from filling out your FAFSA to accepting your award… and all the steps in between.

Scholarships and Grants


MSOE offers a long list of scholarships to help make your education affordable while recognizing student achievement and commitment to academics and service. Take a few minutes to review all the opportunities available to you let us know how we can help you. Students must be a enrolled full-time (12+ credits) to receive any MSOE-sponsored aid (scholarships or grants). If a student registers part-time (1-11 credits), they will receive an updated financial aid award showing their MSOE scholarships/grants as removed.

In addition to scholarships and grants, also known as free money, you can also take advantage of multiple loan opportunities to assist in the investment of your MSOE education. We know that students can be hesitant to borrow money, but with employing 97% of our 2015-2016 graduates with an average starting salary of $60,146, paying off a school loan might seem a little less scary.
