Who is Eligible for Financial Aid?
All financial aid is awarded on the basis of need, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, national or ethnic origin, handicap, marital, parental, or veteran status. It is important to note that the availability of and eligibility for aid from Federal programs are not guaranteed from one academic year to the next and that students must reapply every year. Also, enrolled students must meet this institution’s academic progress standards to continue qualifying for financial aid awards.
How Much Financial Aid Do I Qualify For?
The amount of money available is based upon the student’s financial need, which is determined by subtracting the amount of the family’s resources that are available for college expenses from the estimated cost of attending our New York school.
The amount of financial aid funding available is based on the family / student’s financial need, that is determined by completing the FAFSA and subtracting the amount of the family’s resources that are available for college expenses from the estimated cost of attending Mandl. Funding may include federal and NY state (if applicable). Costs vary according to the program costs that are outlined in the Student Catalog.
How Do I Apply?
Financial need for all programs – State and Federal – is measured by a comprehensive financial statement, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Form (FAFSA).
Students are encouraged to apply for financial aid at least eight weeks before the beginning of the term in order that the funds will be available in the first month.
In order to complete the FAFSA on-line as of (May 10, 2015), students and parents (dependent students) must create FSA User IDs and FSA Passwords at: https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm (You must agree to keep your FAFSA information private and safe).

Mandl is one of the top allied health schools in New York City because we put in the extra time to help our students succeed. Part of that includes helping them track down the financial resources they need to pay for our New York school. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to further their education. When it comes to federal financial aid, our students have several options.
Federal Pell Grant
This grant program is designed to assist needy students who desire to continue their education beyond high school. Whether you are attending Mandl, another school in New York City, or a school in a different state, all students are entitled to apply for a Federal Pell Grant. Eligibility is determined by the student’s need, the cost of attendance, and the amount of money appropriated by Congress to fund the program. The amount of the grant is determined by a standard formula used by the U.S. Department of Education. During the 2017-2018 academic year, Pell Grant awards range from a minimum award of $593 to a maximum award of $5,920.
Federal Student Loans
Direct Subsidized Loans: Federal Subsidized Loans are need-based full amount or prorated loans made available to students by the Department of Education. The maximum amount students can borrow each year is based on their enrollment levels in school. For example, students attending our school in New York City, can borrow up to $3,500 as a freshman and $4,500 as a sophomore. The Subsidized aggregate loan limit for students enrolled in undergraduate programs is $23,000. The current interest rate of a new Direct Subsidized Loan is at a fixed 4.45% (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018). All students must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN). Repayment begins six months after students either: graduate, cease enrollment, or drop below half-time enrollment status.
Direct Unsubsidized Loans
Federal Unsubsidized Loans are not based on demonstrated need. Independent undergraduate students and undergraduate dependent students whose parents are not eligible for a PLUS Loan can borrow up to $6,000 each year. All undergraduate dependent students can borrow up to $2,000 each Borrow Base Year (two semesters). Interest accrues and can be paid while in school, or compounded on this type of loan. The current interest rate of a Direct Unsubsidized Loan is a fixed 4.45%. Undergraduate independent students can receive a combination of direct unsubsidized and subsidized Loans, but not to exceed an aggregate amount of $57,500. Undergraduate dependent students can receive a combination of unsubsidized and subsidized loans, but not to exceed an aggregate amount of $31,000.
Direct Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)
PLUS Loans are fixed rate loans made available to parents of dependent undergraduate students to assist with educational expenses. The maximum amount that parents can borrow is equal to the College’s Cost of Attendance minus other aid the student receives. These loans require a credit check and the parents must complete a Master promissory Note (MPN). Repayment of both principal and interest may begin 60 days after the final loan disbursement is made, or the parent may choose to defer loan payments until six months after the date the student ceases to be enrolled at least half-time. This loan has a fixed interest rate of 7.0% (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018).
Loan Origination Fees vary based on date of 1st disbursement:

To apply for TAP students enrolled at our College must complete the FAFSA and the New York State TAP application.
State Student Financial Aid Academic Standing Requirements
for Maintaining Eligibility:
To receive payment under New York State student financial aid programs, students must maintain good academic standing. Failure to pursue a program of study or to make satisfactory academic progress can result in the student not being eligible for State financial aid.
Good academic standing consists of two elements:
- Pursuit of Program, a requirement that a student complete a certain percentage of credits each term.
- Satisfactory Academic Progress, a requirement that a student accumulates a specified number of credits and achieves a specified cumulative grade point average each term.
If an award recipient fails to maintain both elements of good academic standing, payment of any award for subsequent terms is suspended until the student is reinstated in good academic standing.
- Pursuit of Program: Program pursuit is defined as receiving a passing or failing grade in a certain percentage of a full-time course load. The percentage increases from 50 percent of the minimum full-time load in each term of study in the first year for which an award is made, to 75 percent of the minimum full-time load in each term of study in the second year for which an award is made, to 100 percent of the minimum full-time load in each term of study in the third and each succeeding year for which an award is made. Withdrawal grades (W) are not counted towards meeting the program pursuit requirement. The minimum full-time course load per term is 12 credits. Our Manhattan school offers two certificate programs and five associate’s degree programs (60 credit hours or more).
- Satisfactory Academic Progress: Minimum satisfactory academic progress requirements to receive payment of awards are different from the satisfactory academic progress requirements for academic purposes, which are outlined in detail in the Academic Policies section of this catalog.
Students enrolled in one of the Mandl’s degree programs must complete the program within three years of program entry or financial aid will be jeopardized. Certificate program students must complete within one and one-half years of program entry.
Students who are on academic probation or who have been advised that they are not making satisfactory academic progress may request a review of such determination. After an initial review by the Financial Aid Office, an appeal, if appropriate, may be made to the Financial Aid Director. Mitigating or special circumstances may be considered during the initial review and appeal.
