Applying for Financial Aid

The doctoral program provides approximately $180,000 in need-based grant aid to students each year.  Students who have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and who are enrolled as students in good standing are automatically eligible.

Additional Financial aid to complete your doctoral program may consist of loans, fellowships, external grants, and scholarships. Most graduate students receive a combination of grants and federal student loans. Private educational loans are also available to students who require additional financial assistance.  The Financial Aid office has a designated counselor for doctoral students.

We encourage all students who apply to the Ed.D. program to also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completion of the FAFSA automatically makes students eligible for need-based grants provided by the Ed.D. to all students.

Additional information about loans and scholarships is available at the Office of Financial Aid website.
