Welcome from the Director
"The Department of Financial Aid at McNeese State University welcomes the opportunity to assist you with funding as you enroll at McNeese. We administer federal, state and institutional programs which are available to you in the form of grants, student loans, and jobs on campus. Since every student is eligible for assistance, we encourage you to contact us for more information regarding the applications process...". Taina Savoit, Director - Financial Aid
The Office of Financial Aid is under the supervision of the Director of Financial Aid. The operations of the department include the administration of state and federal student aid programs (i.e. grants, loans, jobs). Scholarships are administered by the Scholarships and Testing Office.
One of the primary functions of the office is to administer programs which provide financial assistance to students of McNeese State University. A wide variety of programs are available from federal, state, and local funds under the general headings of loans, grants, and work opportunities. The type and amount of aid available to a student usually depends on need and academic achievement, although other factors may be considered.
Through a packaging concept, it is often possible to provide a student who has a high need factor with sufficient funding to cover the majority of college expenses. The University considers all applicants without regard to gender, race, or creed. Complete applications must be filed in the Office of Financial Aid before May 1 to be considered for the following fall, spring and summer sessions.
The Office of Financial Aid hours are 7:45 a.m to 4:30 p.m Monday through Friday.
The office is closed during holidays and official university closures.
