Financial assistance can be an integral part of a student's education regardless of the level of education achieved. The Lee Business School, Financial Aid and Scholarships office, and Graduate College offer several forms of financial aid that include loans, grants, scholarships, fellowships and graduate assistantships to assist MBA students to obtain a degree. Almost everyone, regardless of their income, can qualify for some type of financial aid.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
You must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online to be considered for Federal Direct Stafford Loans. While financial aid packages are offered to admitted students, all applicants are advised to file their FAFSA by November 1 for priority consideration. The fall semester deadline to submit your FAFSA is May 1. Students filing the FAFSA after May 1 should be prepared to pay their bill, or set up a payment plan. Financial aid funds can then be received as a refund.
Most students who apply for financial aid will qualify for loans. Graduate students qualify for unsubsidized loans which do accrue interest. Stafford Loans are offered at interest rates lower than consumer loans and repayment begins six months after graduation, or six months after enrollment drops to less than half-time status. Students who file the FAFSA early and show high need may also qualify for a Federal Perkins Loan. Funding for this program is limited.
The Grad PLUS program is a non-need-based federal loan that allows graduate students to borrow up to the full cost of attendance, minus any other financial aid they are receiving. This program may be of interest to students who either have little or no eligibility for need-based financial aid programs or need additional assistance to pay college costs after other forms of aid have been awarded. These loans are contingent upon creditworthiness or require a creditworthy co-borrower.
