Graduate Financial Aid
Scholarships are available for graduate students at Merrimack College.
Graduate students enrolled at least half-time (a minimum of 4 credits per semester) may qualify for financial aid in the form of Unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans. Unsubsidized Stafford loans carry a fixed interest rate of 6.8% and repayment does not being until after a student falls below half-time or graduates. Graduate students are eligible to borrow a maximum of $20,500 per academic year, or up to their yearly financial aid cost of attendance.
Students may apply for financial aid by completing a 2012-13 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov.
To ensure efficient processing, please complete your FAFSA prior to the start of the fall semester. Please be sure to add Merrimack’s school code: 002120 to ensure your FAFSA is received.
If you have any questions on the application process or your eligibility, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 978-837-5186.
