Financing Your Education: How to Get it Done.
It is generally recommended that you begin applying for financial aid at the same time you apply for admittance to the MAT program.
Marygrove's School Code for the FASFA is 002284.
- If you are applying for federal financial aid, you may do so online at www.fafsa.edu.gov. Normally, it takes approximately two (2) to three (3) weeks for FAFSA to process your application. You will receive an emailed confirmation from FAFSA when the application has been processed.
- There are several payment options available to you including Financial Aid, Tuition Management Service, Tuition Reimbursement, or VA Benefits.
- If you haven’t already, please complete your FAFSA as soon as possible. You will need to complete the 2011-2012 application.
Before you begin a FAFSA…
You will need records of income earned in the year prior to when you will start school. You may also need records of your parents’ income information if you are a dependent student.

For the 2011-12 school year you will need financial information from 2010.
You will need to refer to:
