Student Loan Options
For post-baccalaureate students, there are three types of low-interest loans available. They include:
The PRIME program offers a limited number of merit-based scholarships of up to $5000 at the time of admission into the program. No additional application is needed. These scholarships are awarded to highly competitive students for the full academic year and can be applied to the summer semester(s). For most consideration, submit your application earlier in the cycle.
Students are highly encouraged to search and apply for outside scholarships. Look to outside scholarship search engines, employers, local foundations, clubs, and community scholarship opportunities. Students should notify the Office of University Financial Aid of any outside scholarships received.
Additional details on financial aid for the PRIME program can be viewed on the Financial Aid website.
