Applying for Financial Aid

We're Here to Assist You

Here is some helpful information to get you started. If you need assistance, please email finaid [at] (Financial Aid) or call 800-926-5534 or 402-399-2429.

  1. Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at starting October 1. Be sure to include College of Saint Mary’s federal school code, 002540 to have your application sent to us.
  2. In the meantime, research and apply for private scholarships and grants that you might qualify to receive. Check with your high school guidance counselor, various online scholarship search resources, and inquire with your clubs, organizations, or employer benefits.
  3. After you are accepted to a degree or certificate program at College of Saint Mary, you will get an email notification from our Financial Aid team to login to NetPartner, our Financial Aid Portal. There, you can review, accept or decline your financial aid, and access any additional documents needed. Your admissions counselor will contact you within a few days after you receive this message to discuss your aid and answer questions you may have.
  4. Complete your Semester Financial Arrangements (SFA) with College of Saint Mary after you are registered for classes and your financial aid file is complete. You will make payment arrangements for your balance due or set up direct deposit for your financial aid refund.
