The Financial aid mission is to provide the maximum financial aid available to qualified students to help make their attendance at Pace University a reality.

The Pace University(PU), New York City, New York, administers a wide range of scholarship and financial aid programs designed to enable the student to pursue his/her studies to graduation. There are four types of financial aid available at Pace:

  • Scholarships

  • Grants

  • On-campus employment

Their financial aid administrators will develop a financial aid award package that meets the applicant’s specific needs. Their package may combine two or more types of aid as well as alternative financing opportunities.

They help students and families with their college expenses by awarding merit, and need-based aid in the form of Pace funded scholarships, grants, and awards. Academic scholarships and grants are gift funds and do not need to be repaid. In addition to these Institutional resources, grants and scholarships are available through the state and the federal government. Financial Aid in the form of loans, which must be repaid, is available through the federal government and private lenders.

The basis of selection for most financial aids is eligibility and/or financial need. The financial need determines an applicant’s eligibility for many types of aid.

Financial need is the difference between the Cost of Attendance at a university or college and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as calculated according to the federal Need Analysis Formula. The Cost of Attendance includes estimates for tuition, fees, room, board (meals), transportation, books, and personal expenses.

After filing FAFSA applicants will receive an Electronic Student Aid Report (E-SAR) from the Federal Department of Education that will include their Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Applicants can determine their financial need by subtracting their EFC from the total cost of the college they wish to attend.

The Financial Need formula is: Cost of Attendance – EFC = Financial Need

Students with family incomes ranging between $0-30,000 receive a federal aid amount of $36,668 due to a higher need of financial assistance. A slight change is observed with the range starting from $30,001-48,000; the aid provided for it is $35,995. For incomes within $48,001-75,000, the aid provided is $32,229. When the income range increases to $75,001 - $110,000, the aid amount decreases to $29,055. When the range increases beyond $110,000, the aid amount gets reduced to $27,132.
