Application Process

The FAFSA is the primary application used by students to apply for financial aid. The application can be completed at www.studentaid.gov. Income information from the year 2021 is required to complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA. This application is available for fall semester 2023, spring semester 2024, and summer semester 2024.

The Federal School Code for MGA is 001581.

Payment Deadline

The payment deadlines for fall semester 2023 are as follows:

Early Registration: July 26, 2023 (Students who registered on or before July 26)

Late Registration: August 15 (Students who registered after July 26)

Please be sure to check your account balance and financial aid offers 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.

Does your financial aid offer cover the full cost of tuition and fees? If not consider one of the following payment alternatives:

  1. Enroll in Bursar Office Payment Plan if applicable for your term of enrollment: https://www.mga.edu/bursar/payments/payment-plan.php
