      Funding

      There are 3 types of loan programs for Graduate students:

      • Federal Direct Student Loan - A federal loan where the student is the borrower. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (5 credits each trimester) to be considered for the Federal Student Loan.
      • Federal Direct Graduate Plus Loan - A credit based federal loan where the student is the borrower. Students may borrow up to the Cost of Attendance minus any financial aid the student is receiving. A credit-worthy endorser (co-signer) may be required by the lender. Students must first have their eligibility determined for the Federal Direct Student Loan before borrowing the Graduate PLUS loan.
      • Private Alternative Loans - These are private credit based loans where the student is the borrower and may require a credit worthy co-signer. Students should maximize their federal loan eligibility before applying for a private loan.

      Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
