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.

Badges and Non-Matriculated 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.

Financial Aid and Payment Plans

Visit the   Financial Aid and Scholarship Services   website for detailed information on funding opportunities. 

Stony Brook recognizes the need for helping students manage the expenses of higher education. To this end, the University offers a Time Option Payment Plan (TOPP), a program that allows students to make equal and consecutive payments throughout the year. For details on this program, including enrollment deadlines,  visit the Bursar's website.
