Federal Direct Loan Program
The most commonly utilized form of assistance for graduate students is the Federal Direct Loan Program. For a complete review of the loan program, please review our Federal Direct Loan informational page.
Federal Direct PLUS Loan and private educational loans
The Federal Direct PLUS Loan and private educational loans provide students with an opportunity to seek additional assistance beyond their eligibility for the Federal Direct Loan. The Office of Financial Aid suggests applying for the Federal Direct PLUS Loan Program before applying for private educational loans. However, please review our information sections for both the Federal Direct PLUS Loan Program as well as the private educational loans.
A limited number of merit scholarships (consisting of course tuition waivers) are available each academic year for both master's and doctoral level degrees.
