Aid Information for Transfer Applicants
The financial aid office at the MSU College of Law understands that in many cases students are transferring to the school with financial aid already processed at their prior institution. If you are transferring to MSU College of Law then you should ensure you have taken the steps necessary to facilitate a smooth transition in your financial aid. Specifically you should have your FAFSA data sent to MSU Law by logging into www.fafsa.ed.gov and adding our federal school code (G02254) or by contacting the Financial Aid Helpline at 800-4-FED-AID. You should also inform your previous institution’s financial aid office that you will be transferring and ask to have your financial aid cancelled. Please note: your financial aid does not "transfer" from one school to another.
Once we receive your FAFSA data we will process your financial aid and post it on eFinaid, a section on STU-INFO (https://stuinfo.msu.edu/). (You may access STU-INFO once you have activated your MSU e-mail account.) You will receive notice from our office by email, to your MSU e-mail account. The email will ask you to log into eFinaid and follow the steps necessary for finalizing your financial aid. MSU Law is a Direct Loan school. You must complete a new Master Promissory Note (MPN) so we can process your Stafford Loans, and GradPLUS Loan, and our link for the MPN is www.studentloans.gov. If you have a private loan then you should contact your lender and request a new certification for MSU College of Law. We will certify your loan once your lender contacts us.
If you have any questions about the financial aid process for transfer students, then please contact the financial aid office at email@example.com or 517-432-6810.
