Financial Aid

In order to qualify for federal student aid, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and be enrolled in a degree-seeking program with at least a half-time status. At the graduate level, federal student aid includes the Direct Unsubsidized loan and the option to apply for the Direct Graduate PLUS loan.

International students who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents can apply for a private alternative educational loan. Some private education loan lenders may require the assistance of a U.S. citizen or permanent resident as a cosigner.
