Montana State University's FAFSA school code is 002532.

**New! Important Information** The FAFSA will be available on October 1st, 2022 for the 2023/2024 academic year. The priority filing date is December 1st of each year you will want to be considered for best financial aid package.

Filing your FAFSA by MSU's priority date of December 1st ensures that you will receive the best possible aid offers from limited funding sources such as Supplemental Grants and Work Study awards. It will no longer be necessary to estimate your taxes as the FAFSA will now be based on prior-prior year's tax information. For example, you will report 2021 calendar year income on your 2023/2024 FAFSA.

At Montana State University, we encourage students and families to make informed decisions about financial aid. We highly recommend that you borrow only the amount of loans you need to successfully complete your education.
