Student Financial Services Policies
Student Financial Services
Satisfactory Academic Progress
Students are expected to meet certain academic requirements to continue receiving financial aid. If extenuating circumstances led to your current academic issues (accident or severe illness, death of household member, etc.) you may submit an appeal form, outlining your situation.
Code of Conduct
The MMA Office of Student Financial Services works to ensure its employees adhere to the highest ethical behavior and professional practices.
Withdrawals and Refunds
For financial aid purposes a withdrawal can be an official withdrawal, a medical withdrawal, a military withdrawal, an unofficial withdrawal (walk away), a conduct dismissal or an academic dismissal. A student is considered to be withdrawn if he/she is not actively enrolled in and attending/participating in any credit bearing courses in a degree granting program. Withdrawal refund policy also applies to students who are dismissed during the academic term.
Books and Supplies Advance
In the spirit of good stewardship regarding student financial aid and our responsibility to provide access to higher education to our students, Massachusetts Maritime Academy will adhere to the following policy regarding advancing financial aid funds (from all sources) to students to assist with their purchase of books and supplies (to include the requirement that all students have their own laptop, tablet or other computing device).
Undergraduate Payment Delinquency
This policy addresses the timeline of undergraduate billing due dates, the consequences for students not paying on time, and the Academy departments that are accountable for applying these consequences.
