Graduate Financial Aid
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan
Graduate students are eligible for the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. This loan carries a fixed interest rate of 6.6%. Borrowers may choose to defer the interest payments while in school and during their six-month grace period, but the interest will be capitalized.
Graduate students may receive up to $20,500 per academic year, but this amount cannot exceed the cost of attendance minus other financial aid.
Graduate PLUS Loan
An additional federal loan for graduate students who are ineligible for the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan or who have a remaining balance after their financial award. This loan has a fixed interest rate of 7.6%, and is available to students without an adverse credit history. The absence of any credit history is not viewed as adverse credit.
Please contact the Office of Student Financial Services for more information on applying for this loan.
