Application for Spring Financial Assistance

A student must be enrolled at The University of Southern Mississippi on at least a half-time basis and must be seeking a degree from the university to receive most types of federal financial aid. If you wish to receive federal financial assistance for the spring semester, please complete the following if:

  • you are not currently enrolled at The University of Southern Mississippi, or
  • you are enrolled on a less than half-time basis at The University of Southern Mississippi.

If you are enrolled on a less than half-time basis, you should notify our office if the number of hours for which you are registered changes so that we can determine if you have financial aid eligibility. If you have made a change in your admissions and/or program status, contact our office so that we can determine if your financial aid eligibility should be revised.

Students who wish to receive federal financial assistance for the spring session must complete the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid if they have not already done so.

If you are not currently enrolled at The University of Southern Mississippi please complete the information requested below.
