Statement of Ethical Principles

Mercy College of Health Sciences is a standing member of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA). As such, we believe that the primary goal of the financial aid professional is to help students achieve their educational goals through financial support and resources. NASFAA members are required to exemplify the highest level of ethical behavior and demonstrate the highest level of professionalism. The guidelines were last updated by NASFAA's Board of Directors in March 2014.

Below is a summary of the NASFAA Statement of Ethical Principles. The entire Statement can be found at this link.

Financial aid administrators shall:

  • Advocate for students
  • Manifest the highest level of integrity
  • Support student access and success
  • Comply with federal and state laws
  • Strive for transparency and clarity
  • Protect the privacy of financial aid applicants
