Financial Aid Shopping Sheet

Veteran Shopping Sheet

The Veteran Shopping Sheet is a consumer tool that students and parents can use to make comparisons of Costs and Aid offers from different institutions. Using a basic format, the sheet presents information about your available financial aid, net costs, and how much you should expect to pay out-of-pocket. This information should be used to help you compare financial aid packages offered by different institutions. The shopping sheet generates figures that are estimates only and all tuition rates and fees are subject to change without notice. It is intended to help you compare aid offers from different schools based on your "Estimated Net Cost" after grants/scholarships. Please understand that the Shopping Sheet is not a bill.

At Morgan State University (MSU), the Office of Financial Aid will make available to all Veteran consumers information that's reported on the Shopping Sheet as Direct Costs that a student will incur.

The Office of Financial Aid has reported estimated Direct Costs on the Shopping sheet as follows:

                                                    2019-2020 Costs

A student's Cost of Attendance (COA) total will always be much higher than a student's Direct Cost to the institution because the COA consists of indirect cost items such as personal allowance, travel expenses, books, and supplies. Therefore, when students are making cost comparisons you will need to compare the Direct Costs reported on the Shopping Sheet from different institutions.

After you are accepted, have identified yourself as a veteran/dependent, and Morgan State University has received the results of your FAFSA, you will have access to a personalized Shopping Sheet.
