Undergraduate Financial Aid
Misericordia University has helped students and parents afford a superior college education. Through its participation in federal and state financial aid programs, use of institutional resources and contributions by alumni and friends, the Student Financial Services Office tries to meet, as fully as possible, each student's financial need.
The University is eligible to participate in a full range of financial aid programs through the U. S. Department of Education. University scholarship and grant programs can make a difference in your "bottom line" cost depending on family income, financial need, and other factors. Federal, State, and University grant programs can have a significant impact on the amount you actually pay for a quality Misericordia education.
Types of Aid
Funds that must be repaid with interest after you leave school (having graduated or dropped below half-time). You can find loans in the student's or parent's name, and they are offered by the federal government and a variety of lenders.
Gift aid provided by Misericordia, federal, and state sources that does not need to be repaid. Amounts will vary based on enrollment status, academic accomplishments, and/or financial need.
Federal Work Study provides part-time jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student's course of study.
There are many employment opportunities offering part-time, hourly positions in and around the University for students who are not eligible for Federal Work Study.
Other Employment Opportunities
Students who are interested in part-time employment opportunities in the community should inquire at the Insalaco Center for Professional Development and Leadership (McAuley Hall 1st Floor).
All University Jobs are made available to students through the MyMU Portal under "Student Employment" Federal Work Study and Student Employment earnings are paid directly to students, not credited towards paying the semester bill.
