Your financial aid is determined by your course load each term and your enrollment status. You must maintain at least a half-time status for financial aid eligibility and each term you must apply for funds.
Each student is allowed to receive funding (from all resources i.e.: loans, scholarships, etc.) up to the budget (see calculating your budget). Federal guidelines were utilized and the amount represents the maximum funding you can receive. See cost of attendance budget below.
To be eligible for financial aid, you must register for at least 5 credit hours per term. Financial aid awards cannot be estimated until you have registered for courses.
Des Moines University is a private institution and has the same tuition for in-state and out-of-state students.
