Manhattan College funds a variety of scholarship and grant programs that are awarded to eligible students. Please note that institutional aid is awarded based on full-time undergraduate resident status. Students have to be enrolled in at least 12 undergraduate credits towards their degree. When a student changes residency status from resident to commuter, the change in the student's budget will result in the loss of their need-based aid. The merit scholarship will remain the same. The Office of Financial Aid Administration strongly urges all students who are considering moving off campus to speak with a financial aid counselor prior to making a residency change to see if and/or how your financial aid could change.
Manhattan College awards need-based aid to students who demonstrate financial need. These awards are given for a maximum of four years (eight semesters). Need-based aid recipients must maintain satisfactory academic progress, full-time enrollment, file FAFSA annually and on time, and comply with any verification requests.

Eligibility for these scholarships is based on a variety of accomplishments such as exceptional SAT or ACT scores, grade point average, volunteer and community involvement, extra-curricular accomplishments and class rank.
