More on Graduate Student Financial Aid
Graduate students who are U.S. citizens or hold permanent resident status are encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) no later than eight weeks prior to the beginning of their program in order to determine their eligibility.
Students should submit all financial aid paperwork and requests to the Financial Aid Office, indicating their planned level of enrollment for the coming year. When the candidate is accepted and the financial aid paperwork is complete, a financial aid award letter will be sent from the Financial Aid Office to the accepted student.
