Affordability & Value for Students & Families
We strive to make our College affordable for students and families. Nearly 90 percent of full-time undergraduate students at Anna Maria College receive some form of financial aid. Financial Aid is based on a combination of merit and need. At the Graduate level, scholarships, assistantships, and Federal Aid are available for eligible students. New entering day students for the fall of 2023 are eligible for a $500 FAFSA filing incentive grant by submitting your FAFSA before March 1.
Make sure to include Anna Maria College’s school code (002117) to ensure that your information is sent to Anna Maria electronically. The username and password that you create will be used every year, so remember to save this for future reference.
We understand that many families have been impacted financially as a result of COVID-19 and have incomes that are much lower than what they earned in 2021. If you feel your family falls into this scenario, or are otherwise facing financial hardship, the Office of Financial Aid encourages you to complete the FAFSA and also complete our Special Circumstance Appeal Form. If you are applying for the fall semester of 2023, the Special Circumstances form is available here.
Contact the Financial Aid office at (508) 849-3366 or email@example.com for more information or to set up an appointment to meet with our staff. Our business hours are Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm.
IMPORTANT FAFSA CHANGE
For the 2023/2024 academic year, you will complete the 2023/2024 FAFSA which opened on October 1, 2022 and will use 2021 federal tax information.
Students’ letters of acceptance will include notification of a merit-based scholarship determined by an academic index that is calculated using grade point average, class rank, and standardized test scores when provided. Scholarships range from $20,000- $26,000. Resident students may also be eligible for housing grants up to $2,000 annually.
Need-Based Financial Aid
Need-based financial aid is determined after the accepted student submits the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Click here to access the FAFSA. The FAFSA should be completed as soon after October 1 as possible. Need-based aid will likely be comprised of grants, loans, and work-study. The amount granted is based on the family financial circumstances of each student. Click here for instructions on submitting the FAFSA on the myStudentAid Mobile App.
