To receive any type of financial aid, you must first complete the Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Your financial aid will not be packaged until
you are admitted into a degree granting program at Ferris.
Ferris Title IV code: 002260
Undergraduate Degree Programs
The first thing you need to do is to file your FAFSA online at www.studentaid.gov. Make sure to use the correct federal school code for Ferris so that we get your
information. Ferris' code is 002260.
Next, if you will also be taking classes from one of Ferris' consortium community
college partners, you need to fill out the community college consortium form after you are registered in your classes at both institutions. You must fill out
a new form for each semester that you are enrolled.
Please log into MyFSU, select the Student tab, the Financial Aid quick link button, and then the select
Online Consortium Form link from the Consortium portlet (right side, third one down).
Complete the form and submit electronically.
Eligibility for financial aid begins with acceptance into a degree granting program.
Undeclared or non-degreed status does not allow you to be eligible to receive financial
aid. To receive financial aid, undergraduate students need to carry at least six credits
Graduate Degree Programs
File your FAFSA online at www.studentaid.gov; make sure to use the correct federal school code for Ferris so that we get your
information (code is 002260). Students must be accepted into a program and have completed
a FAFSA application. To receive financial aid, graduate students need to carry at
least five graduate credits each semester.
Accessing Financial Aid Funds
Once we have all of your paperwork processed, we will apply your aid to any Ferris
charges first, and then issue a direct deposit to you for the remainder of your aid.
It is your responsibility to pay the community college course tuition.
You will need to pay for your books up front with a credit card or check because a
refund, if any, will not be issued until after the 100% refund date. To set up your
direct deposit bank information, log in to MyFSU, go to the Student tab, choose the
MyAccount quick link, then the Direct Deposit quick link.
