Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office at Manor College awards financial aid to applicants who have been accepted for admission to the College. In order to receive federal and state aid, a student must be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen. We offer need-based financial aid to eligible applicants in the form of grants, loans and campus employment. Scholarships (merit-based) are awarded on the basis of the applicant’s academic achievement and future promise.

The student’s demonstrated need is equal to the total cost of attendance (COA) which includes tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, transportation and miscellaneous personal expenses, less the Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is determined by the Department of Education by processing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Department of Education takes into consideration the household size, number in college, parent’s and student’s income and assets when calculating the EFC.





Application procedures for Financial Aid

For students seeking financial aid, they must apply as soon as possible after October each year. A student must apply for financial aid prior to the time he/she is applying for admission to the College. All forms should be submitted by March 1st. Applications received after that time will be considered on a first come first serve basis.

All who have previously attended a post-secondary institution, including Manor College, must submit their FAFSA application prior to March 1st.

The applicant must submit a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the Central Processing Center. Applying on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov is the best option.
If a student’s file is selected for verification the following information must be submitted to the financial aid office before any aid will be processed:

• Verification Worksheet
• IRS Tax return transcript or use of IRS Data retrieval on the FAFSA

The Manor College federal school code for the FAFSA is 003294.

Financial Aid Programs

A student must formally apply for financial aid to receive any award of grant, loan, campus employment or scholarship which is funded by Federal, State, or Institutional monies. Each program has its own criteria and guidelines for awarding funds. PHEAA and Pell Grant amounts are automatically calculated by ling the FAFSA. Campus-based aid amounts (FSEOG, Federal Work Study and Federal Perkins Loan Program) and Institutional Grant amounts (Manor Grants and Scholarships) are administered by Manor College and based on the availability of funds. Financial Aid is awarded in the order which applications are received. Notification of all awards will be made via the student’s Financial Aid Award Letter after a student has been accepted for admission to the college.

Grant Aid

Financial Aid that comes in the form of a grant is free money toward the tuition bill for enrollment in college and does not have to be repaid.

Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) State Grant

The PHEAA State Grant is for Pennsylvania residents who are enrolled full-time (12 or more credits) or part-time (minimum of 6 credits per semester) in an undergraduate program (matriculating) and have demonstrated nancial need. Current students must le their FAFSA prior to May 1 to be considered for a state grant. Students who reside outside of Pennsylvania should check with their respective State Boards of Education to see if there are any grant programs avail- able.

Manor Grant

This is an institutionally funded grant awarded to full and part-time students who have demonstrated financial need to supplement other sources of financial aid.


Student Employment

Student employment is a form of financial aid that does not get directly credited to the student’s tuition bill. It is provided to help cover incidental expenses that the student incurs. Student’s receive a bi-weekly paycheck for the hours worked. The student can earn up to the amount of the award. Since student employment is based on availability of work on campus, the Financial Aid Office cannot guarantee that the student will earn his/her maximum award.



Federal Work Study Program (FWS)

This is a federally funded program awarded to full and part-time students for the academic year who demonstrate need. FWS gives college students an opportunity to have a part-time job on or off-campus. Jobs are assigned at the beginning of the academic year.


State Work Study Program

This is a state funded program for students who are interested in a campus job during the summer. The student must have nfiancial need and be a recipient of PHEAA State Grant. A separate application is required and must be led with the state by April 15. The application is available in the Manor College Financial Aid Office.



Student Loans

Loans are a form of Financial Aid that must be repaid. Students who borrow money are required by Federal Law to complete Entrance and Exit counseling. During these sessions, the rights and responsibilities for borrowers and repayment and deferment options will be explained. Loans may not be credited to a student’s account until he/she has completed an entrance counseling session or a “hold” will be placed on his/her account. A student who is graduating or withdrawing from the college must complete an exit counseling session or a “hold” will be placed on his/her account.


Federal Direct Loans

Manor College participates in the Federal Direct Loan Program. Loans are either subsidized or unsubsidized.

A Subsidized Loan is awarded on the basis of financial need with the federal government paying the interest on the loan until the end of the grace period. The grace period is a six-month period after a student graduates, leaves school or ceases half-time enrollment.

An Unsubsidized Loan is not based on need. Interest payments begin when the loan is disbursed. A student either makes quarterly interest payments or defers the interest and capitalizes it. Capitalization means the interest will be added to the principal and increases the amount to be repaid.

A student must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits) to qualify for a Federal Direct Stafford Loan. A full-time freshman (0-29 credits) may borrow up to $9,500 per year. Full-time sophomores (30+ credits) may borrow up to $10,500 per year.


Federal Direct Loan Program

This federally funded loan is made and guaranteed by the Federal Department of Education. A student must complete a Master Promissory Note online at www.studentloan.gov.


Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)

This federally funded loan is made to a credit-worthy parent. The parent may borrow an amount up to the cost of attendance less any other nancial aid. A parent must obtain a Master Promissory Note application online at www.studentloan.gov. Repayment on PLUS loan begins 60 days after the 2nd disbursement is made to the College. If a parent is denied for a PLUS loan, a dependent student is then eligible for an additional unsubsidized loan for up to $4,000 per year.



Private (Alternative) Loans for Undergraduate Students

These non-federally funded loans are given to students to help fund the cost of attendance beyond all federal and state loan and grant help. Private loans are credit-based loans. Each loan’s Web site should be reviewed for interest rates and repayment options before choosing a loan!!! A list of private loan lenders is available at the Financial Aid Office.


Changes to Financial Aid Awards Drop, Add, or Withdraws

Students must notify the Financial Aid Office if there are any changes in their enrollment status.

Students should be aware that dropping, adding or withdrawing from one or more courses will affect financial aid eligibility and will cause a change in the student’s award. Also, a student withdrawing from one or more courses will be responsible for completing additional course work to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements for financial aid.




Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy for Current Students Receiving Financial Aid

Federal regulations require that all financial aid recipients meet federal academic progress standards while taking courses toward a degree or certificate program. Progress is measured by the student’s cumulative grade point average, percentage of credits successfully completed and time frame or pace toward completion of the program. The College checks progress at the end of the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

The College is federally required to have a satisfactory academic progress policy that, for a Federal Student Aid (FSA) recipient, is the same as or more strict than the College’s standards for a student enrolled in the same educational program who is not receiving assistance under an FSA program.

Each student receiving Federal Title IV Student Financial Assistance must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) by the standards provided in the policy which follows. Standards to be evaluated are qualitative (grades) and quantitative (PACE) and maximum hours attempted toward completing a degree or certificate).

Federal Title IV programs to which these standards apply include: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Direct Student Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized), Federal Direct Plus Loans, and Federal Work-Study.

Students who le the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive funds from these programs must have their SAP evaluated. The SAP Policy is available in the College Catalog, and on the Financial Aid Office Webpage at http://www.manor.edu/ naid/app_proc.html . Detail on Fact Sheets. You may pick-up a copy of this policy from the Financial Aid Of ce. You may also contact Financial Aid at 215 884 6051.

There are three parts to the Satisfactory Academic Progress requirement:

Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA)
Cumulative (Overall) progress
Maximum Time Frame
Students must comply with all three to remain eligible for aid. **More detailed explanation of policy on website.

Time Frame

For an undergraduate program the time frame cannot exceed 150% of the published length of the program measured in audit hours attempted. If a student has exceeded the 150% time frame the student will only be eligible for non-federal student assistance. For instance, if the published length of an academic program is 60 credit hours, the maximum time frame must not exceed 90 attempted credit hours.
