Our Philosophy

The mission of the Office of Financial Aid is to enhance the growth, development, and performance of all qualifying students by providing financial resources and information that will enable students to maximize their educational experience. The Office of Financial Aid is here to ensure regulatory compliance in the administration of all financial aid funds.

At MSM we realize that your college education represents a significant investment in your future, and that you are choosing to pursue your education at a premier conservatory to fulfill your goals and dreams. While the primary responsibility of meeting all educational expenses lies with you as the student, and possibly your family, the Office of Financial Aid is committed to making your education at MSM as affordable as possible. Financial aid is available in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and student employment. The Office of Financial Aid will help you create your personalized financial aid package. It is our goal to provide the best financial aid package (within regulations and availability of funds) to each and every student who attends or has been accepted to MSM.

We are dedicated to providing exemplary service to our students and their families. The goal of the Office of Financial Aid is to help you navigate through the many financial aid options available, if you qualify, to maximize your funding options. You will be treated with personalized service taking into consideration your individual needs and unique circumstances.
