Financial Aid

As a Ball State student, you have 24/7 access to a system that allows you to see your important financial aid information at your convenience and on your schedule. The self-service portal is web-based and easy to use. With this tool, you can:

  • enjoy 24/7 access to financial aid information, including real-time application status
  • discover what information or documents are needed to complete a financial aid application
  • accept awards online the minute they are finalized
  • participate in online review of loan applications
  • get direct communications on such items as “holds” and other critical messages regarding financial aid eligibility

Ready to get started? Here’s the path to hassle-free financial aid information:

  • Go to the MyBSU portal at http://my.bsu.edu, where you’ll be prompted to log in using your Ball State username and password.
  • At the top of the Welcome page, select the Student Finances tab, then the link for My Financial Aid.
  • Choose the Financial Aid menu, then select the Eligibility box.
  • Next to the Select Aid Year label, choose the current award year in the drop down box and click on Submit.

It’s that easy! You will now be able to see what documents are required to make your file complete. If you have to submit a form, the specific requirement will display as a link, and clicking it will bring up the PDF version for you to complete, print, and submit to the financial aid office. You can select the Instructions icon for more information about each requirement.

If you have questions, please contact the financial aid office at 765-285-5600.

Please note: The new system is for 2012-13 and future awards only. Information regarding financial aid for prior academic years is available by contacting the financial aid office.
