- Master's and Certificate Students
Financing for master’s degree and certificate programs may be available through grants,
scholarships, loans (federal and private), federal work-study programs, employer reimbursement
programs, and time-option payment plans offered through the University. In addition,
students may pursue campus employment opportunities.
- Non-Degree Students
Generally, students not enrolled in a degree granting program are not eligible for
federal or state aid. However, if the courses are prerequisites leading to admission
into a degree-granting program, and the student is enrolled for six or more credits,
we can offer a federal student loan.
