Financial Aid For Health Professions Students
Health Professions (DPT/MAT/MSLP) – Graduate Level
Financial Aid Eligibility
- Students should complete the FASFA by March 1 to be eligible for the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. For financial aid purposes, students are now considered to be independent- no parental information is needed on the FASFA.
- Since the first bachelor’s degree has been earned, students are no longer eligible to receive federal, state, or institutional grants and scholarships.
- **NEW** for 2022-2023 – students will not receive a grant equal to 33% of the tuition rate. Instead, they will be charged the net tuition price.
- Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan eligibility increases to a maximum of $20,500 for two semesters. Interest will accrue during all periods (during enrollment, grace period, and repayment). Students may borrow up to the total cost of education minus other financial aid. Students enrolled for a minimum of 4.5 credits per semester (including summer), may borrow the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan without reducing borrowing eligibility for other semesters.

- After Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan eligibility is exhausted, students may apply for the credit-based Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan (for most applicants, no cosigner is required).
- Students may also choose to borrow through a private student loan instead of the Graduate PLUS Loan.
