We understand paying for your education may feel overwhelming. Financial aid is crucial for most students pursuing college education. Financial aid comes in many forms, including loans, grants and scholarships. Explore the different types of aid here.

Aid doesn’t always come in the form of loans though. It can sometimes be a grant, like the Pell Grant, which you don’t have to repay or scholarships from Drury or outside sources.

Follow the steps below to get started:

  1. Apply to Drury University. You must be admitted to the university and in good academic standing before any aid can be awarded.
  2. Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1, but before the recommended deadline of February 1. Some aid is awarded on a first come, first served basis so the earlier you apply, the better.
  3. Some students are randomly selected each year for FAFSA verification. If you were selected, you’ll need to submit additional forms before funds can be released to your account.
  4. If you plan to use VA Educational benefits, complete the Veteran’s Certification Request Form.
  5. View and accept or decline any part of your award via MyDrury. Students will receive an email when their financial aid award letters are available.
  6. If you wish to apply for an additional student loan, complete Drury’s Loan Application within MyDrury. You can also view the maximum amount of student loan money for which you are eligible.
  7. If you are a first-time borrower, you must complete financial aid Entrance Counseling.
  8. Complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) for the Department of Education.
  9. Apply for any Drury GO scholarships you are eligible for.
