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 2022 are eligible for a $500 FAFSA filing incentive grant by submitting your FAFSA before May 1.

IMPORTANT FAFSA CHANGE
For the 2022/2023 academic year, you will complete the 2022/2023 FAFSA which opened on October 1, 2021 and will use 2020 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 $18,500 to $25,000. 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.
