Financial Aid Application Procedures at Gwynedd Mercy University

You are here

It is the responsibility of the aid applicant to file all required forms by the stated deadlines. An incomplete application cannot be processed and, therefore, will not receive consideration.

In distributing financial aid, priority will be given to full-time students. Students enrolled on a half-time basis, who are carrying a minimum of six credit hours per semester, may apply for financial aid and will receive all possible consideration for every type of assistance for which they qualify and which the University has available.

A letter explaining the action taken on the aid application and giving information about aid offered will be sent to each student whose application is complete.

Students who wish to receive consideration for financial aid, in addition to fulfilling the requirements for general admission, must submit the following by March 15:

  1. Submit the Gwynedd Mercy University Financial Aid Application to the financial aid office by completing the application. Visit our Aid Applications and Forms page to download the appropriate form.
  2. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid ( FAFSA ) to Federal Student Aid Programs by March 15 for processing. Gwynedd Mercy University should be designated as recipient. (Code #003270)
