Graduate Financial Aid

Receive up to $20,500 per year with a Stafford Loan!

Financial Assistance is Available

For U.S. citizens and permanent residents, the options for financial assistance include federal and private loans. We encourage you to apply for financial aid at the same time you apply to graduate school.

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans

These loans are available to graduate students carrying at least six credits or more per semester. Eligibility is based on the financial aid application materials submitted to the Student Financial Services Office.

  • An Unsubsidized Stafford Loan is not based on need and the interest is paid by the student while in attendance.
  • The Student Financial Services Office determines the maximum eligibility for student loans.

Please note: the lender may deduct origination fees from the face value of the loan before the loan funds are sent to the University to pay the tuition account. Student loan borrowers must complete a Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note along with Entrance Counseling (your rights and responsibilities as a loan borrower), before the federal Stafford Loan will be processed. Information regarding the Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling will be provided on the financial aid award letter mailed to you.
