Financial Aid for Graduate Students
Graduate students may apply for a Federal Stafford Loan
package totaling the cost of their education each year, up to $20,500
($10,500 for Post-Baccalaureate Certificate students). Federal Stafford
Loans for graduate students are unsubsidized and are not awarded on the
basis of need. Interest for unsubsidized loans is charged starting at
disbursement until the loan is paid in full.
To be eligible for a
federal loan, you need to apply and be admitted to a graduate program.
Students in term-based programs must enroll in at least 4 credits per
term (6 credits per term is required for Post-Baccalaureate Certificate
programs). Students in accelerated, non-term programs are eligible for
aid based on enrolling in the program.
