Director of Financial Aid - Kari Martin

Hello, and welcome to week one of Early Fall Quarter! I hope that you received your cost budget in the mail prior to the start of Early Fall Quarter and that you have met with the Financial Aid Department if you had questions or needed clarification on anything.  If you have further questions about your cost budgets or your financial aid in general, please stop by and see the Financial Aid Department.  We would be happy to assist you.

I also wanted to remind everyone about the scholarship board in the hallway outside of room 210.  This board not only lists Minnesota School of Business’s institutional scholarships, but scholarships outside of our institution as well.  Every month the Financial Aid Department will highlight a particular scholarship, and July’s highlighted scholarship is the 2012 TwinWest Foundation Career Path Scholarship.  This scholarship could earn students up to $1000 if chosen.  Please see the scholarship board or the Financial Aid Department for more details and to pick up an application.  Hurry because the deadline for this scholarship is July 31st!!  The other scholarship I wanted to mention is the Professional Certification Scholarship.  This scholarship reimburses students for certification examination fees.  Here are a few examples of relevant programs and exams:

BS/AAS Accounting

  • A+ 220-701 Essentials
  • A+220-702 Practical Application

AAS/Diploma Massage Therapy

  • Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam
  • National Examination for State Licensing

AAS/Diploma Medical Assistant

  • Certified Medical Assistant (CMA(AAMA)

Please see the chart on the scholarship board of the Financial Aid Department for a complete listing of qualifying programs, exams and courses, as well as maximum dollar values.

Good Luck!


Thank you for your Interest in Minnesota School of Business.
