Let’s face it, applying for financial aid isn’t easy and that is why the Burns & McDonnell Student Success Center and Financial Aid Office want to help. Each year we have a week dedicated to helping students complete the FAFSA, learn about scholarships, fill out verification and other forms, and grasp how to budget money. The B&MSSC partners with Financial Aid by bringing representatives from the Financial Aid Office into the B&MSSC to help assist and answer any financial aid questions students may have.
