Financial Aid

We understand that the cost of your education is an important factor when making the decision on which school to attend. It's our goal to make high-quality graduate-level education financially obtainable for all of our students. Our Financial Aid counselors will work with you to identify the financial aid options available to you.

Graduate students may be eligible for various loan programs, including the Federal Direct loan and the Federal Perkins loan. The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). All admitted students should complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA form helps determine your eligibilty for state and federal aid.
