Financial Aid

All accepted students are encouraged to apply for financial aid by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after October 1st. Please add Framingham State University as one of your colleges; our Title IV school code is 002185.

FSU's FAFSA priority filing deadline is March 1st. Students may still apply for financial aid after March 1st, however, the University cannot guarantee that federal, state, or institutional funds will still be available.

Counselors in the Office of Financial Aid are available to help you with the financial aid process. Resources are available on their website, such as Financial Aid TV, which answers many questions students have during the financial aid process.

Scholarships

All freshman applicants are automatically reviewed for the Honors Program merit scholarship - no additional application is required. Students must meet all scholarship criteria which is based on high school GPA, SAT/ACT scores, and the demonstrated potential for superior work at the university level.

The Mancuso English, Humanities, and Social & Behavioral Sciences Scholarships require a separate application. These four-year scholarships are renewable for eight semesters and provide 100% of tuition, fees, and room & board. To learn more about eligibility requirements, as well as how to apply, visit the Mancuso Scholarships website.

FSU's Office of Financial Aid maintains a list of scholarships for current students.

There are many outside (non-FSU) scholarships available. Explore these opportunities at FinAid.org and FastWeb.com. Be careful to avoid scholarship scams (you should not have to pay money to get advice or help completing applications). Consult your high school guidance counselor or our Office of Financial Aid if you have questions about the legitimacy of scholarships or financial aid programs.
