Manhattan College is continually ranked as one of the best schools in the entire country for return on investment, meaning that our graduates are known for making top salaries. In fact, the latest Payscale ROI study rated Manhattan College’s 20-year net return on investment as $615,000, which is calculated as the difference between 20-year median pay for a bachelor’s degree graduate and 24-year median pay for a high school graduate minus the total four-year cost.

We’re invested in your future here at Manhattan College. We have resources available to help make sure that you understand not only how much you’re borrowing, from whom, and how to pay it back, but also how to manage your money responsibly so you can make good financial decisions now and in the future.
  • Federal Loans

    Federal student loans are aid that is offered to you by the U.S. government based on your family’s financial need. You apply for federal aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Incoming freshmen should file their FAFSA no later than February 15. The Manhattan College FAFSA code is 002758.

    Federal education loans must be repaid, with interest. In most cases (excluding Stafford Subsidized and Perkins loans), interest accrues from the date the funds are distributed to your account.

  • Private Loans

    As an undergraduate student, you and your family may also be eligible for private loans. These loans are offered through private banks and generally have higher interest rates, making them a more expensive option than federal loans.
