The process starts by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is then reviewed by Madison College and you are alerted to any other steps you need to complete prior to receiving an award notice. After all review and processing is complete, a financial aid award package is posted to your myMadisonCollege account and an award notification with instructions is mailed to you. Federal Direct Loans are awarded if you are eligible. It is up to you to accept or decline those loans. You must be enrolled in at least 6 credits to be eligible for loan funding.
If you are accepting any portion of your loans, you must complete Entrance Loan Counseling and a Master Promissory Note. More information can be found on the Financial Aid Loans web page.
