In order to qualify for need-based aid, you must demonstrate that without financial assistance, you could not afford to attend Marist. The College determines your "need" by evaluating the information you provide when you complete the financial aid forms. (The formula used is: Cost of Attendance minus Estimated Family Contribution equals Need). Need-based programs include grants and certain loans.
In order for the Marist Grant-In-Aid to be renewed, the student must demonstrate financial need and maintain satisfactory academic progress.
- The non-renewable Marist Grant-In-Aid is awarded for the current academic year. This grant is not guaranteed each year and is based upon financial need, which could change each year, and the timeliness of your FAFSA application to Marist.
- The non-renewable grant is awarded to students on the basis of good academic performance and other financial aid resources available to students such as Tuition Employer Deferment. It is also based on the funds available for the grant program.
- Payment of the award is made in two equal payments in the fall and spring, unless otherwise noted. Marist Grants are not offered during the Summer or Winter terms. The amount will be directly applied to the student's account upon verifying the student's enrollment for the term in question and the fact that the student has maintained the necessary academic standards.
