We like to help our prospective students as much as we can, and this counts double for financial aid. Contact us or give us a call at 1-800-831-0806, x5159and we'll see what we can do.

Federal regulations mandate that all scholarships and other funding received from outside sources (sources other than Morningside College, the federal government, and/or your state government) must become part of the financial aid award.  You are required by federal law to report all sources of outside financial aid to the Office of Student Financial Planning.  Please report any outside/private scholarships to the Office of Student Financial Planning by completing the Private Scholarship Form available on our FORMS Web page. These awards may affect federal, state, or Morningside financial aid eligibility.
