Most students who apply for Federal Financial Aid (Stafford Loan) via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are eligible for $20,500 per academic year in loans. The awarded amount is divided into 2 semesters - fall and spring. Once awarded, the funds can be declined, decreased or accepted in the amount awarded. The amount of tuition covered by the financial aid is deferred until the aid award is disbursed.

2. Tuition Reimbursement

A copy of your company tuition reimbursement policy is required by our office. We will provide information to you required by your Department of Human Resources.

Students who are using full or partial tuition reimbursement as their method of payment receive a grade sheet and invoice or receipt at the end of each semester.

The amount of tuition covered by the tuition reimbursement policy is deferred and should be received up to 30 days after the end of each semester.

Students with partial tuition reimbursement declare a supplemental method of tuition payment. e.g. financial aid or self pay, which covers the remaining tuition.

A payment plan is provided for students who select the self-pay method. There are 4 payment installments in the fall and spring semesters, and 3 payment installments in the summer semester.

Private, credit-based lending is accepted by the university to assist students with covering full or partial tuition and fees. Lending companies include banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions.
