Institutional Awards Policy

Scholarships, grants and other funding received from internal and external sources are considered financial resources for determining a student's eligibility for federal and other aid. Students who receive COGS awards or scholarships through Advancement, for example, will have their financial aid adjusted to avoid overawards. Usually student loans will be the only financial aid adjusted although Work-Study awards may be impacted as well.

The MSU College of Law follows the same Institutional Award Policy outlined on the MSU financial aid website (PDF). Students are encouraged to review the policy and contact the law school financial aid office with any questions. Questions can be directed to John Garcia, Financial Aid Director, at or 517-432-6810.
