Scholarships

Graduate Studies Scholarships

A degree you want from a school you respect - at a price you can afford.

We recognize that earning a graduate degree takes a considerable commitment of time, effort, and financial resources to – and that is why we work hard to keep tuition costs as low as possible, comparable or lower than many of the region’s private and public schools.

Scholarships help make your graduate study affordable.

Merit scholarships, covering up to as much as 20% of tuition costs, are available for most of our graduate programs. Some programs offer graduate assistantships with reduced tuition, and fellowships which may cover up to the full cost of tuition. Scholarships are awarded based on the overall strength of application materials. 

  • Every admitted student is considered for a merit scholarship.
  • A separate application is not required.
  • Notification of scholarship awards is done at the time of notification of admittance.

Additional financial aid opportunities

To further make your graduate education more affordable, we encourage you to explore financial aid available for graduate students.

Graduate students enrolled at least half-time (a minimum of four credit hours) are eligible to borrow a maximum of $20,500 per academic year, or up to their yearly financial aid cost of attendance. To be eligible, you must complete the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. International students are not eligible for federal financial aid, but may obtain private loans and/or enroll in an institutional payment plan. Review more information about graduate financial aid.

We’re here to help.

Our dedicated financial aid counselor for graduate students will work with you to create a financial strategy that meets your needs – or just to answer any questions you may have.
