Types of Aid
Marist values the achievements of students and how their talents build a dynamic community for living and learning. Every student who completes an application for admission is considered for merit scholarships. Recipients will be notified directly by the selection committee if a scholarship has been offered. In addition, those who complete a financial aid application will also be considered for need-based awards.
Returning students are eligible to apply for need-based endowed scholarships each spring. A FAFSA must be filed for the upcoming academic year in order to be considered for any need-based endowed scholarships.
Grants are need-based and considered “gift aid.” Repayment is not required. To be considered for need-based grants the student and family must demonstrate interest and financial need by completing the financial aid process by the deadlines based on application type specified in the Key Dates Calendar. Eligibility for Federal and State grant funding is dependent upon information provided on the FAFSA, while eligibility for Institutional grant funding is dependent on the FAFSA, CSS Profile, and tax documents.
There are a variety of resources available to help finance a Marist degree, and borrowing loans is one of them. Members of the Student Financial Services Loan Center are available to assist students and families through the selection process and management of loans. The choice of which loan best fits your situation is up to you, but it is our sincere hope that our team can help you make an informed decision.
Marist offers a variety of campus jobs to provide students work experience and offset educational expenses. Students are employed on campus through Federal Work Study and Campus Employment programs. These programs helps students develop interpersonal skills, time management, and workplace etiquette. Work study earnings will not affect your eligibility for Federal Financial Aid. After a two-week period at the start of each semester, campus employment is available to all students.
Please note: International students are eligible to work through the Campus Employment Program.
