Paying for Courses

Financial Assistance

There are a number of financial assistance options to help defray the costs of enrolling in a graduate professional program. These include Stafford loans, graduate PLUS loans, military programs, and loans from private lenders. Through myPurdue, you can monitor your financial aid funding and make sure the proper payments are made in a timely fashion. * As of May 26, 2019, students taking online courses whom reside in California are not eligible for Federal Student Aid *
