The University's Financial Aid and Scholarships Office assists graduate students in meeting the costs of their education through loans and the federal work-study program. Loans are low-interest awards that must be repaid after enrollment ceases. The work-study program provides need-based awards for which students work and are paid biweekly. Both programs are subject to the restrictions of available funding.
