The Gwynedd Mercy University Financial Aid Office strives to work in cooperation with each student to build a financial aid package that will ensure that all students may pursue their academic and personal goals. Approximately 90% of our full-time undergraduate student body receives some form of financial aid.
Our financial aid program is designed to provide financial aid assistance to qualified students whose resources are inadequate to meet the costs of attendance at the University. Financial aid is offered through a financial aid package which consists of some combination of scholarship, grant, loan and employment. The University endeavors to assist as many students as possible by utilizing college, federal, state, and other funds.
