Financing Your Education

Below is a listing of programs that might be included in your financial aid package to assist you to finance your education. To be awarded funds from any program, you must meet the eligibility requirements and there must be funds remaining in the program.  

Unless noted, details about these programs can be found on our Financial Aid Programs page.

    • Federal PELL Grant
    • Federal Supplemental Opportunity Education Grant (SEOG)
    • Federal Direct Loan – subsidized and unsubsidized 
    • Federal Perkins Loans
    • Federal Work-Study
    • New York State TAP Grant
    • New York State Aid for Part Time Study Grant

If you have a financial need after all Federal, State and Institutional aid that you are eligible for has been awarded and accepted, you can apply for a private student loan. By Federal Regulation, Maria College is not allowed to direct you in your search for private student loan programs. New York State Higher Education Services Corporation has a comparison tool that you may find useful. 

Do not hesitate to contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions.
