Financing Your Degree
You have several options to choose from when financing your degree. Potential funding sources and payment options for students to consider include:
There are three main types of financial aid: Federal Direct Stafford loans, the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS loan, and alternative educational loans. To begin the financial aid application process, submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the appropriate academic year.
The Graziadio School offers a number of special scholarships for students meeting specific scholarship criteria. Awards are made annually according to established requirements and amounts may vary based on the availability of funds. For a list of endowed scholarships, click here.
Many companies offer full or partial tuition reimbursement for their employees. Check with your human resources department to determine what kind of education benefits are available. The University will allow a deferral of payment for students receiving tuition reimbursement from their employers and not receiving financial aid.
The Graziadio School offers payment plans for your convenience. There are three options to consider – simple payment, two payment, and three payment options per trimester.
