Financial Aid

Most Minnesota State Mankato students depend on federal, state and/or private funding assistance to finance their college education. We are committed to providing valuable information about financial aid programs and processes to ensure each student has access to the maximum available funds. The financial services specialists at the Campus Hub are available to answer questions and connect students with additional advising assistance if needed.
