Applying for Aid

Financial aid for Graduate and Professional students is available in the form of Federal Direct loans, Federal work awards, Federal grants, assistantships, and departmental grants and scholarships. Grant and scholarship funding is available through your college and a separate application is required. Additional information about Federal grants and departmental grants and scholarships can be found here

Students must be in a degree seeking program and must be enrolled at least half-time to be eligible for Federal aid. Only Graduate level courses within your program of study are eligible for Federal aid and count toward your enrollment status.

International students may be eligible for grants, scholarships and assistantships. However, only U.S. Citizens and eligible non-citizens can apply for Federal and State assistance, in addition to institutional grants and scholarships.
