These awards are contingent on the accuracy of the information you provided to the College. The aid package is subject to change if: (a) you receive additional outside resources; (b) there is a change in the family's income; (c) incorrect information was provided; (d) there is a change in your enrollment or housing status; and/or (e) you fail to submit all required paperwork. Withdrawal from the College, disciplinary action, or failure to maintain minimum academic standards are cause for adjustments or cancellation of any or all awards.

Subtract the total financial assistance awarded, excluding Work-Study, from your costs to determine your projected balance due for the year.  (Please note: Work-Study funds may NOT be credited to the student's account as students are paid directly on a biweekly basis).

To accept and secure your financial aid award, please complete the enclosed reservation agreement within three weeks of the date of this letter.

Be sure to set up your one-on-one counseling appointment with Sophia Henderson by phone at 617-731-7121 or email henderss@pmc.edu  to discuss your exciting future at Pine Manor College!
