Financial Aid

Graduate students are eligible for PLUS loans.  PLUS loans are federal loans that graduate or professional degree students and parents of dependent undergraduate students can use to help pay education expenses.  The U.S. Department of Education makes Direct PLUS Loans to eligible borrowers through schools participating in the Direct Loan Program.  In order to qualify for a Direct PLUS loan, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Instructions for completing the FAFSA can be found here.
