Office of Financial Aid
The Office of Financial Aid administers a variety of programs to assist in meeting the financial needs to attend college. The department assists students with Federal and State financial aid programs, student loans, state scholarships, and Federal Work-Study. Applications and explanations of the aid available can be found here. We encourage you to stop by one of our locations in Goodman, Grenada, or Ridgeland or email our staff with questions.
Scheduled payments for financial aid are generally listed next to your awards in your Doghouse. Pell and Loan payments are not usually credited to a student’s account until after institutional aid has been paid to your account.
