Financial Assistance

Earning a degree from FMU is a great investment that can’t be taken lightly. The Office of Financial Assistance is eager to help student and families as they begin the path to earn a degree. To determine your financial aid eligibility, follow these steps:

  1. Complete the FAFSA (FMU Financial Code: 009226)
  2. Submit any additional paperwork sent to you by the Office of Financial Assistance.
  3. Review your award letter that will be sent to you shorty after all information is received.

FMU Housing

Residence Halls

FMU has six residence hall buildings located in two complexes. Palmetto Hall, Swamp Fox Hall, and Marion State Hall form a courtyard with the Ervin Dining Hall. Belle Isle, Snow Island, and Ellen C. Watson Hall form a courtyard around the Allston Housing Office Complex. The residence halls provide an excellent living environment for underclassmen and students who are new to campus.

The Village Apartments

Upperclassmen benefit from a higher level of independence and less oversight than the residence halls. Many students choose campus apartment living as they progress through their college years.

Forest Villas

Larger, 4-bedroom apartments provide a campus living option for students who desire the highest quality and modern conveniences of apartment living.
