Financial Information for Graduate Programs


Financial Assistance

Mount Ida College provides financial assistance through loans and payment plans to help students meet their educational goals. To be considered for financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by visiting the Mount Ida college website at www.mountida.edu and clicking the Financial Aid tab. Mount Ida College’s federal school code is 002193. Students who wish to apply for financial aid must be admitted to the graduate degree program before their financial aid application will be considered.

Subsidized Stafford Loan: Students who demonstrate financial need according to federal regulations are eligible to borrow through the Subsidized Loan Program. With the subsidized loan, the federal government pays the interest while the student is in school. Therefore, no payments are required while the student is enrolled in school (at least part-time, minimum 6 credits) and no interest on the loan will accrue.

Unsubsidized Stafford Loan: Students who do not qualify for a Subsidized Stafford Loan may be awarded an Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan. With the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, the federal government does not pay the interest while the student is in school. Therefore, interest does accrue and must be paid or capitalized.

For information regarding other financial options, please visit www.mountida.edu and click on the Financial Aid tab or contact our office at graduate@mountida.edu
