Financial Aid Options
When we create your financial aid package, we choose from a variety of options, including scholarships, grants, loans and work-study opportunities. A typical aid package combines several forms of aid to meet your financial need. To qualify for need-based financial aid from Marymount Manhattan, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Our school code is 002769.
Scholarships are grants that do not need to be repaid. Marymount Manhattan offers both need-based and merit-based scholarship opportunities. These scholarships are awarded from several sources including the federal government, state agencies, professional and service organizations, private foundations, and Marymount Manhattan College.
To be awarded MMC Institutional Aid, including academic scholarships, all students are required to maintain full-time status (12 credits or more). A student who fails to register full-time drops to part-time status, or withdraws completely prior to the census date will forfeit their institutional scholarships and grants for that semester. If in a subsequent semester, the student returns to full-time status, their aid can then be reinstated for the new semester. Reinstatement will be based on meeting the fund’s eligibility requirements and the availability of funds at the time of reinstatement.
Federal Work-study allows students to earn money while they attend college by working on or off-campus in eligible positions. Students are paid a bi-weekly paycheck just like a regular job. These funds can be used to help meet a student’s personal expenses during the school year.
A loan is money borrowed, usually through a private lender or the federal government, which will need to be repaid. There are several different types of loans that are awarded based on a student’s financial need. Some loans accrue interest while students are in school while others do not begin to accrue interest until after graduation. Learn more about Federal Direct Loans, Federal Direct Parent Loans (PLUS), or Alternative Loan Programs.
Students who qualify may receive benefits under the GI benefit programs.
