Financial Aid Renewal

Financial aid is not automatically renewed unless the program specifically states that you do not have to reapply. All Federal financial aid programs require recipients to reapply each year. Even if you reapply each year, you may not receive the same program or the same dollar amount of funds awarded the previous year. If you have a question concerning whether your financial assistance requires you to reapply each year, you should contact the administrator of the program.

Federal Aid:

You can renew your FAFSA by going to and logging in under returning user.

State Aid:

Most Missouri State programs require the recipient to reapply each year. If you have a special program such as the Bright Flight Scholarship Program, you must meet specific requirements to retain the scholarship. If there is any doubt about the funding you are receiving you should contact the Administrator of the program.

Institutional Aid:

Fortunately, the majority of financial aid at Missouri Southern is automatically renewable. Each program has a specific criteria to meet to retain these awards. Students failing to meet the criteria may appeal the loss of their awards. However, Foundation scholarships require recipients to reapply each year. Forms are available in the Financial Aid Office and on our website.
