Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid

What We Do

Although the primary responsibility to pay for higher education rests with the family, financial aid is intended to fill the gap that exists between a family’s ability to pay and the cost of attendance. This partnership approach (parents, students, and the University) is a widely accepted concept in the administration of all types of financial assistance at most colleges and universities.  The goal of the Financial Aid Office is to provide assistance and counseling to our students who, without such aid, would be unable to enroll or continue their studies at Marywood University. 

Our Staff

The staff in the Financial Aid Office at Marywood University is committed to upholding the highest level of ethical and professional standards possible. Such standards are evidenced in all practices and policies established in Financial Aid Office and governed by various codes of ethics including Marywood University’s Statement of Core Values and the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrator's Statement of Ethical Practices.  Furthermore, Financial Aid staff members refrain from participation in any activities that may directly or indirectly result in a monetary benefit to the employee. Marywood University does not promote or support a "Preferred Lenders List"; however, we do provide material for students and parents to obtain important information from lenders necessary for making well-informed decisions.
