What kind of financial aid is available? Who is eligible?
Both merit-based and need-based financial aid is available through the Student Financial Services office.
Need-based funding is available for enrollment during the academic year and summer. The majority of merit-based assistance is awarded to students entering in the fall semester. Extremely limited merit funding is offered to spring semester entries and no merit funds are available for summer enrollment.
Will I get any fellowships or grant awards?
Fellowships are available on a merit basis. Fellowships are limited, both in size and in number. In the College of Arts and Sciences, most fellowships cover a portion of tuition. There are a very few fellowships in the Sawyer Business School that cover full tuition. No fellowships cover living expenses.
What goes into a merit award decision?
Merit awards generally are based on undergraduate academic success, work experience, standardized test scores, and fit in the program.
What are the financial aid deadlines?
The financial aid deadline for the Fall semester is April 1. Financial aid forms for Spring semester entrants must be in by November 1. Please be sure to submit all forms in time to allow for processing and disursement before a tuition bill is due.
