Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office is dedicated to helping students find additional sources of funding to help meet the costs of receiving a quality education. This checklist will help walk you through the steps necessary to apply for financial aid. We strongly recommend you complete these steps in the order in which they are listed.

  1. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you may register for one at fafsa.ed.gov. The FSA ID will serve as your electronic signature for the FAFSA. Retain your FSA ID for use each year.
  2. Fill out the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov - Information from this application is used to determine if you’re eligible to receive money from federal grant, loan, and work-study programs. In addition, it is used to evaluate some forms of institutional funding. Multnomah’s school code is 003206.
  3. Visit www.multnomah.edu/myfinaid to view and complete any other documents needed to process your aid. (Note: You cannot login to MyFinAid until Multnomah has received your FAFSA. Upon receipt, you will receive email confirmation from the Financial Aid Office instructing you further.)

Financial aid can be an important part of paying for your education, and we believe that a good blend of merit and need-based aid is the best way to help students achieve their goals. For a complete list of scholarships, awards and grants available, please visit the financial aid website at www.multnomah.edu/finaid.

Before an offer of financial aid will be granted, Multnomah requires the student be accepted for admission. Therefore, we suggest students work simultaneously on the financial aid process and the admission process.
