Financial Aid

The financial aid office provides students with information concerning types of loans, scholarship and grant information, forms, budgets and helpful addresses and phone numbers. The financial aid office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and is located on fourth floor of the Academic Center.

The financial aid office will work with you to figure out a combination of loans and scholarships to pay for graduate school.

DMU awarded more than $3.2 million in scholarships in the 2013-2014 academic year.

DMU’s cost of attendance budgets are an average of what expenses may be and is also the maximum you can receive. You can request any amount of financial aid up to the DMU student budget for your class. Federal regulations do not allow the financial aid office to certify a student for more than the student budget (this includes all financial aid resources including but not limited to loans, scholarships, NHSC, HPSP (military) or any other form of financial aid a student may be receiving).

Des Moines University is a private institution and has the same tuition for in-state and out-of-state students.
