Financial Aid: In order for the Financial Aid Office to determine your eligibility for Financial Aid, students must complete a 2021-2022 FAFSA on studentaid.gov.  Applicants for financial aid who have not yet received an award by the due date of the e-Bill must pay the balance and be reimbursed when the funds are received. All documentation must be completed and submitted to the Financial Aid Office in order to receive the credit on your account.

Federal Direct Student Loan Program: First time borrowers at Framingham State University must sign a Master Promissory Note and complete Entrance Counseling prior to receiving their student loans. Students may complete these online requirements on studentaid.gov.

Additional Loans: After receiving a Financial Aid package, there may be a balance left on your account. Parents may apply for Federal Plus Loans through studentaid.gov, or apply for alternative loans offered by various companies and banks. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more information on how you can cover your balance.

Outside Scholarships & Waivers: Students who have received outside scholarships or waivers unaffiliated with Framingham State University must submit a copy of the award notification letter to the Student Accounts or Financial Aid Office for consideration. Outside scholarships or waivers may not be accepted by Framingham State University if the grantor has stated a condition of payment in the award notification letter, such as transcripts and/or payments be made directly to the student. The credit will not show on a student’s account without proper documentation. Students will be responsible for the charges if the outside scholarship is not paid.

Veterans: Any waiver of Veteran Affairs Educational Benefit Program must be reviewed and approved by the Office of Veteran Services. Once the proper documentation has been submitted, a credit will be placed on your billing statement. For more information, please visit the Veteran Services section of the FSU website!

529 Plans: 529 Plans are saving accounts that can be put towards educational expenses and tuition for college or K-12 schools. In order to utilize your 529 Plan, you will need to contact your 529 organization to inquire about how to get these funds to the University. Checks can be sent to Student Accounts – 100 State Street PO Box 9101 Framingham, MA 01701. Please be sure to include your student’s information with any checks sent to FSU.

Failure to pay your balance by the semester’s due date may result in your outstanding balance being sent to collections, late fees and an account hold (denied access to your course schedule, registration, and transcripts).
