Financial Aid Office

Pursuing a Quality Education at an Affordable Price

We want to help you get the high-quality education Truman is known for along with the full college experience for an affordable price, and the Financial Aid Office is available to help you out however we can.

We process the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) results to determine federal, state, and some University eligibility and answer questions about grants, loans, and work programs. We also provide information about scholarship service and renewal for returning students (the Admission Office helps incoming freshmen and new transfer students with questions regarding eligibility for Truman scholarships).

And if you’re looking for information about private scholarship check processing, funding for study abroad or summer school, budgeting, financial literacy, or loan counseling, the Financial Aid Office has resources to assist you.
