Meet Marc . . .

Meet Lisa . . . 

She is applying to Mercy College as a graduate student for the upcoming fall semester. In February, she completes her online FAFSA application at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Because she is a graduate student, she only needs to supply her own financial information on the FAFSA (and spouse if applicable).  

Mercy College prepares an aid package showing that Lisa is eligible for the maximum Stafford Loan: $20,500 per year. 

Lisa chooses to complete the application for the full amount of the Stafford Loan, which will leave her with some extra funds to use for books and living expenses.

Please Note: $20,500 is the maximum Stafford Loan available to a graduate student per academic year. Federal Graduate PLUS Loans are also available along with a monthly payment plan.
