  • Students will receive the Physical Therapy Grant equal to one-third of the graduate tuition rate. For 2018-2019 this amount is $15,543.
  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan eligibility increases to a maximum of $20,500 per year. Interest will accrue during all periods (during enrollment, grace period, and repayment).
  • After Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan eligibility is exhausted, students may apply for the credit-based Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan. Students may borrow up to the total cost of education minus other financial aid.
  • Students may also choose to borrow through a student alternative loan.
