State Aid

The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) offers a variety of scholarships and need-based grants to eligible Maryland residents.  They process the applications and select the recipients for all of their awards.  Then they send us recipient lists and ask us to help disburse those awards after verifying that students meet all of their eligibility requirements.  Many, but not all of these programs require students to file a FAFSA by March 1 every year.  Many of their programs also require additional MHEC applications, and many of those applications steps must be completed in their MDCAPS system.  

Below, we've listed the MHEC Aid programs for TU students.  To review all MHEC Aid programs, (including programs that are not available at TU), see MHEC's full list
