- In 2016-2017, 96.42% of our full-time first-time freshmen received merit based aid.
- The Truman Net Price Calculator/Scholarship Estimator provides only estimated values. Official awards are made upon admission to the University.
Estimated net price does not factor in competitive, non-automatic scholarships and awards. Visit the Competitive Scholarships page for information about competitive Truman awards. Students should apply for admission to Truman by December 1 for fullest competitive scholarship consideration. For fall enrollees, most scholarship recipients are notified via mail of their additional awards by late January.
There are many grant, loan, and work-study opportunities. Eligibility for federal and state financial aid is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov as soon as possible after October 1 of the year prior to enrollment (eg: October 1, 2017 for enrollment during the 2018/2019 academic year). You could be eligible for up to $5,500 in Federal Direct Student Loan assistance. Parent PLUS loans are also available and require the FAFSA be submitted. Be sure to include the Truman’s FAFSA code 002495. Some state programs require an April 1 deadline for FAFSA submission. See financialaid.truman.edu for more information on financial assistance. State and federal aid is dependent on available funding and subject to change by the state and federal governments without notice.
Estimates are based upon the predicted 2017/2018 costs. Charges are subject to change by the Board of Governors without written notice. Automatic scholarship award criteria and values reflect policy for incoming 2017/2018 academic year students and are subject to change.
Indirect costs are based on national averages. Costs vary based on student needs and preferences, and can be influenced by choices made by individual students and their family.
All single, first-year students attending Truman under 21 years of age are required to live in campus housing, unless they are living with an immediate family member (parent, grandparent, or legal guardian) in the Kirksville area or commuting from home.

Federal Loan Programs:
The U.S. Department of Education has two federal student loan programs:
- The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program is the largest federal student loan program. Under this program, the U.S. Department of Education is your lender. There are four types of Direct Loans available:
- Direct Subsidized Loans are loans made to eligible undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need to help cover the costs of higher education at a college or career school.
- Direct Unsubsidized Loans are loans made to eligible undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, but in this case, the student does not have to demonstrate financial need to be eligible for the loan.
- Direct PLUS Loans are loans made to graduate or professional students and parents of dependent undergraduate students to help pay for education expenses not covered by other financial aid.
- Direct Consolidation Loans allow you to combine all of your eligible federal student loans into a single loan with a single loan servicer.
- The Federal Perkins Loan Program is a school-based loan program for undergraduates and graduate students with exceptional financial need. Under this program, the school is the lender.
If you have questions about Perkins Loan eligibility, please contact our financial aid office.
