Financial Aid

If you received financial aid at another school this year and you are now transferring to Bemidji State University, you will need to cancel your remaining aid at the other school.

Once you have done so, complete the following steps:

  1. Visit the FAFSA website and log-in
  2. Under returning user click on “Add a school”
  3. Add BSU school code 002336 and Submit

Once we receive all of the required information, we will determine your financial aid eligibility and send you an email once your award letter is available in your e-services account. Award types and amounts can vary from one school to the next.
