UMSL Wide Financial Support Options

Financial aid is any assistance given to a student to help pay for the cost of college. The assistance can take the form of gift aid, which does not have to be repaid. Scholarships and grants are gift aid. Financial aid can also take the form of self-help aid; money that has to be paid back or earned. Loans and federal work study employment are examples of self-help assistance.
