A master’s degree is an investment, and one option to fund your education is a student loan. Weatherhead does not endorse any specific lender or receive compensatory benefit from any lender. We recommend careful consideration and comparison of all lending options and terms before entering into a loan agreement.

Loans are given to students who have demonstrated financial need and repaid in accordance with the specific terms of the loan. Student loans may be private or government-sponsored, subsidized (need-based) or unsubsidized (non-need-based). Interest may not start to accrue until after graduation or it may begin immediately.

The university’s Office of Financial Aid provides detailed information on the types of loans that are available and how to apply for them.
