Welcome Students!

Thank you for selecting Florida Agriculutural and Mechanical University as your school of choice. The Office of Financial Aid is committed to assisting students in meeting the cost of a college education.
Financial aid has helped millions of students pay for their education beyond high school. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the key to some of the best resources available to you
to fund your education. Therefore, it is important to complete the FAFSA by March 1 annually. We want our students to take advantage of all the grants, loans, and work-study opportunities available to
them. Should you need assistance, our counseling staff is ready and eager to assist you with navigating through the financial aid process.

We hope the information provided on this website will answer questions asked by most financial aid recipients.

The Office of Financial Aid is located in the Foote Hilyer Administration Building, Room 101.
