Our Principles

As part of its philosophy, Ana G. Mendez University abides by the principle of equal educational opportunities for their students on our three institutions: Ana G. Méndez University (Carolina), Ana G. Méndez University (Gurabo), and Ana G. Méndez University (Cupey).

With this guiding principle, the University obtains, receives, 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 Federal and State governments, the Institution, and from donations of the private sector.

Our Institution distributes these funds as efficiently as possible, benefitting a student with as many types of financial assistance programs as is eligible to meet the costs of obtaining his academic goal.

The Financial Aid Portal of Ana G. Mendez University 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.
