Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid

Our Mission

Student Financial Services (SFS) works collaboratively with University offices to provide a high level of customer service. SFS strives to effectively communicate with students and their families regarding all financial matters from matriculation to graduation! The SFS team of the Office of Student Accounts (OSA) and the Office of Financial Aid (OFA) is here to assist all students, regardless of their economic resources, in obtaining financial assistance and the collection of student tuition and fees; while maintaining the fiscal and regulatory integrity of the University's financial programs. 

The Office of Financial Aid serves as a resource to help you through the process of obtaining financial assistance to pay for college.

CARES Relief Fund

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, CARES Act, was created to provide assistance to eligible Millersville University students whose lives have been impacted by the disruption of campus operations during the spring semester due the coronavirus, COVID-19. These funds are available to assist students with educational costs such as food, housing, course materials, technology expenses, health care, and childcare during these uncertain times.
