Application Process

The FAFSA is the primary application used by students to apply for financial aid. The application can be completed at: https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. Income information from the year 2020 is required to complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA.

Please use MGA’s Federal School code, 001581, on your FAFSA.

Payment Deadline

The payment deadline for fall semester late registration is August 16, 2022. Please be sure to check your account balance and financial aid awards in SWORDS to ensure that your registration is secured. Students will have their classes cancelled for non-payment if the balance is not paid in full.

If your financial aid offer is not sufficient to cover tuition and fees please consider the following payment alternatives:

Transient Student Information

If you are planning to attend MGA as a Transient Student, please begin the process to receive financial aid at your home school. After your status has been reviewed, your home school will communicate with our financial aid office regarding your eligibility. Don’t delay, if you are registered for classes, regardless of your status, you will need to pay your fees by the payment deadline.
