How do I apply for financial aid?

  1. Students apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), online at
  2. Students received a Student Aid Report (SAR) in the mail or an e-mail confirmation. Financial Aid at ENMU receives the same information within one to two weeks and sends a request to the student if any additional documents are needed.

Once the file is complete, the student’s financial aid is awarded based on the following:

  • Cost of Attendance
  • Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
  • Other Financial Assistance
  • Financial Need (unmet need)
  • Availability of Funds

What is “Other Financial Assistance?"

Other financial assistance refers to any outside scholarships, participation awards, grants or assistance received by the student other than federal financial aid.
