Our mission is to assist you in finding the resources most appropriate to your circumstances that will enable you to afford a Manhattanville education.
Financial aid is designed to supplement your family’s ability to pay for college costs including tuition, fees, room and board, books, supplies, transportation, and other related educational expenses. Funding may be provided by federal and state governments, the College, and private organizations.
Manhattanville’s institutional funding is awarded at the discretion of the Office of Admission upon admittance to the College. Recipients are chosen on the basis of past academic performance and personal achievement, the potential for active campus engagement, and demonstrated financial need. To determine a student’s needs, the College uses Federal Methodology available through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All or a portion of an award may be underwritten by endowment funds given by generous friends of the College. If this is the case, the recipient will be notified.
All award values are conditional, as new information may impact eligibility and require verification of the financial aid application.
Students are required to notify Financial Aid of all private scholarships received. Per federal regulations, the receipt of private scholarships may impact a financial aid package.
If an adjustment is necessary, the College will eliminate or reduce it in this order:
- Federal Work-Study
- Federal PLUS Loans
- Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans
- Federal Direct Subsidized Loans
- Manhattanville institutional need-based aid
To receive or continue to receive financial aid funded by the state, the federal government, or the College (including loans, grants, jobs, and scholarships), students must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress. For complete details, please refer to the section on Satisfactory Academic Progress.
