SFS will award financial aid once students are accepted to their graduate program. Make sure you:
- Enroll in at least 3 credits (or half-time) each quarter toward a degree or eligible certificate (Principal Certificate, School Superintendent Certificate, Program Administrator Certificate, or School Counseling Certificate).
- Complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year.
Just like undergraduates, you may take advantage of scholarships
. A written financial aid offer for qualifying applicants will explain loan details and limits.
SPU does not have a deadline for graduate financial aid, though earlier is always better than later. The financial aid year runs summer through spring.
Here’s a complete summary of managing your financial aid, including how to understand your aid offer, revisions, enrollment changes, verification, employer reimbursement, graduate eligibility, credit requirements, state requirements, and a handy glossary of terms.
You’ll find the final word in SPU’s Graduate Catalog, which details everything from tuition, fees, and satisfactory progress to payment policies and schedules.
