Step 1: Graduate Application
By applying for graduate study at MICA, candidates are automatically considered for merit-based scholarship funding. No additional application materials are required. Admitted students, at the time of their acceptance notification, will also receive a graduate scholarship offer. For information on how to apply to one of MICA's graduate programs, please visit the Application Procedures & Deadlines for All Applicants section of the Office of Graduate Admission. Prospective applicants can find program-specific application procedures and requirements there.
Step 2: Free Application for Federal Student Aid
Applicants must complete the FAFSA in order to be considered for need-based financial aid, such as federal student loans. Candidates are encouraged to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to ensure funding availability. IMPORTANT: Applicants should complete the FAFSA form for the year in which they plan to begin graduate study. The FAFSA form can be completed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov
