As part of its philosophy, Universidad Metropolitana abides by the principle of equal educational opportunities for the students. With this guiding principle, the University obtains and administers a variety of financial aid funds in the form of grants, college work study and loans for students that have financial need and are eligible. The student aid funds are provided by the Federal and the Commonwealth government, by the Institution and from donations of the private sector.
Universidad Metropolitana distributes these funds as efficiently as possible, benefitting a student with as many types of financial assistance programs as is eligible for to meet the costs of obtaining his academic goal.
The Financial Aid Portal of Universidad Metropolitana provides the policies and procedures that guide us in the distribution of funds, according to the regulations that apply. It also gives the student instructions for applying to financial aid, including how to complete the Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA). Required for access to any federal financial assistance. Other relevant norms, policies and regulations that students should be aware of are also included.
For the purpose of awarding Federal Student Aid, the definition of an Academic Year for our Institution is 24 credits and 30 weeks that runs from July 1st, 2014 through June 30th, 2015.
The Academic Year consists of a fall semester, a spring semester and a summer term. During the 2014-2015 Academic Year, the fall semester runs from August 20th, 2014 through December 21th, 2014.
