Financial Assistance

Employer-Sponsored Tuition Assistance

Many organizations offer tuition assistance to employees and, in some cases, cover most of the tuition costs. Programs and policies vary among employers. Consult your personnel office to learn more about tuition assistance at your organization. Please be advised that tuition reimbursement constitutes a private arrangement between employee and employer. Full payment of tuition and fees must be received upon registration, regardless of the terms of such an arrangement between the employee and employer.

Federal Financial Loans

Financial assistance is available for graduate students. The Federal Stafford Loan is available to students who are admitted to a master’s degree program, registered in a minimum of six credit hours (two courses) in a semester, and are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
