After being accepted, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) soon after January 1st and enter Midland's Title IV Code: 002553. The application can be found here.
If you have completed these two steps, we will mail your award package to you after March 1st.

Additional Ways to Fund your Education
On-Campus and Off-Campus Employment
Midland University offers on-campus employment, also known as Work Study, to all students. Getting started is simple; you just need to apply for a position through the College Central job board on Midland University's Personal and Career Development page and be hired by the position supervisor.
Typical work assignments range from three to seven hours per week. In addition to providing additional finances, on-campus employment provides students an opportunity to gain professional experience with positions offered in administrative and faculty offices, the library, residence halls, and campus maintenance.
Off-campus employment is also readily available for Midland students. The Fremont community and surrounding areas have long been very supportive of Midland and offer our students numerous opportunities for part-time employment. Off-campus opportunities can be found on Midland University's Personal and Career Development page, as well.
Midland University is pleased to help families enroll in an interest-free payment plan to split the student’s total educational cost for the year into monthly payments. After the first week of June, enrollment can be set up online through the student’s CampusConnect account at my.midlandu.edu. For more information, please refer to our 2015-2016 Payment Information.
