Welcome to the MDCHS MSN New Student Page!

This page has been created to provide you with information and due dates to help you prepare to join us in January.  We will continue to update and add information to this page, so check it often!

Join our Facebook Group!

□    Get to know your fellow admitted  MSN classmates! You will receive an invitation from Facebook to join this private group soon (if you do not, check your spam folder first, then please let us know).

File your FAFSA – Deadline 30 days before start of classes

□ Complete your FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA School Code for Mary Baldwin is 003723. If you have any questions about the process, feel free to give Robin Dietrich, Director of Financial Aid a call at 540.887.7025 or 1.800.468.2262.

□ Once Mary Baldwin receives your FAFSA information, we will provide you with an “award letter”, which gives you options for student loans if needed. You do not have to accept the award, or, accept the full amount.

□ Why you may want to file a FAFSA if you are eligible for tuition reimbursement:  If your employer offers tuition reimbursement, filing the FAFSA gives you flexibility, even if you do not pursue the loan at that time. Should your eligibility for the employer benefit change over the semester, having the filing in place allows you to secure the loan at a later date. This information cannot be provided retroactively.

Registration for Courses

□ Your program director will schedule a time to discuss your career goals and a degree-completion plan. Once the course selection is set, she will work with the Registrar’s office to help you register for Spring Term classes. The courses available this Spring Term are:
