Financial aid consists of fund provided to students and families to help pay for postsecondary educational expenses. Our office primarily assists students with securing federal and state funds in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and work-study.
Maritime institutional scholarships are also available for students. New students are automatically considered for merit scholarships through the Admissions process. Continuing students may apply for need and merit-based scholarships during the academic year.
What you should know
U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using code 002853. While your FAFSA can be filed anytime between October 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 for the 2020–2021 school year, Maritime does have priority filing deadlines.
As you prepare to begin your studies at Maritime, please take a moment to explore “Self-Service”, the online portal where you can find useful information. Go to the Self-Service Portal to view your financial aid awards, financial aid file status, and your billing statements and more. After logging in to Self-Service, select “Financial Aid” (to view the status of your financial aid) and/or “Student Accounts” (to view your bill, student refund, and/or make a payment).
Has your financial situation changed? Students who have experienced a change in their financial circumstances since completing their financial aid application may file a Petition for Special Circumstances to see if additional financial assistance may be available. Please note: Not all changes in financial circumstances will result in increased financial assistance.
