Financial Assistance

Our Mission

The Student Financial Assistance Office (SFA) assists families with understanding college costs at Missouri University of Science and Technology. Our team facilitates access to federal, state, institutional and private financial resources and coordinates access to university scholarship and loan awards for our students, while adhering to NASFAA’s statement of ethical principles.

The SFA Office continually strives to provide high quality service to all students, families, faculty, staff, alumni and other interested parties. Our team works to meet campus strategic goals through financial aid administration, community outreach, financial literacy and debt counseling programs.

Federal Aid Opportunities

To apply for federal financial aid, (loans and work study), you must complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Preference will be given to those students whose FAFSA has been received by February 1. If you apply for federal financial aid at any other time of the year, Missouri S&T will attempt to fill your financial needs to the extent that funds or opportunities are available.

Federal aid is contingent upon students meeting satisfactory academic progress (SAP). SAP requirements are listed on the student financial assistance website:

Graduate students should contact the department in which they are majoring for information for scholarships, grants, fellowships or assistantships. For more information about graduate financial assistance:
