Financial Aid

How Do I Apply For Financial Aid?

Families can apply for financial aid by submitting the FAFSA. One application is all it takes to be considered for aid at Valley City State University and at any other schools you are considering. We strongly encourage every family to submit the FAFSA, even if you think you may not be eligible for aid. Regardless of your income level, the best resources for financial aid (University, state, and federal aid) are only available through the FAFSA.

We use the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and University aid programs. A financial aid offer might include grants, loans, scholarships, and/or work study. We encourage you to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible after it becomes available on October 1. 

You can fill out the FAFSA application online. Be sure to send your information to Valley City State University by including our school code 003008. 

What Happens After I Submit My FAFSA?

You may apply for aid before you receive an admission decision from Valley City State University, however, you won’t be notified of what aid you’ve been offered until you have been admitted.

Please review our guide to Understanding Your Award Notification to clarify what you are receiving.

Please contact our Financial Aid office with any questions.
