Funding Your Graduate Education
The Office of Financial Aid is committed to helping current and prospective students with the financial aid process. Our approach is individualized and responsive to each student’s specific needs.
To apply for federal financial aid, students should first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The Maryland University of Integrative Health school code to use when completing the FAFSA is G25784. To complete the FAFSA Entrance Counseling, Master Promissory Note, and/or Exit Interview, students should go to www.studentloans.gov.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 requires that colleges and universities inform current and prospective students about academic programs, retention rates, graduation rates, crime reports, financial aid procedures and more, so student consumers can make fully informed choices regarding their education.
For additional information about MUIH and a comparison to over 7,000 other institutions of higher education, please see the U.S. Department of Education College Navigator website.
Method of Discloure
The Financial Aid Office provides information through various channels, as the university’s financial aid brochure, Financial Aid Web sites, My Data Portal student portal, e-mails and catalogs (electronic and print). The Financial Aid office e-mails a variety of important information to the student’s primary e-mail address. The Financial Aid office will use this as the primary means for contacting students. Students may find other consumer information topics throughout the MUIH website.

MUIH calculates the cost of attendance by estimating the student´s education expenses for the period of yearly enrollment. This cost of attendance reflects how much the student alone will need to spend to live and attend school.
Students who receive financial aid must not only demonstrate financial need, but must also make satisfactory progress toward the completion of their programs of study as determined by MUIH in accordance with federal regulations.
Title IV Student Credit Balances Policy
MUIH follows Maryland state refund guidelines and the federal policy for return of Title IV funds.
Verification is a process used to check the accuracy of certain information entered on the FAFSA and to resolve any errors. Some students are selected by the Department of Education and some are selected by the financial aid office. Selected students will need to provide additional documentation to the financial aid office before we can finalize and disburse federal financial aid.
The U.S. Department of Education allows the MUIH Office of Financial Aid limited discretion in making professional judgments based on special circumstances that may affect your family. If your family has experienced extenuating circumstances that would result in a change to the data you provided in your aid application, then you may be able to appeal for a re-evaluation of your aid.
