Scholarships

We offer a variety of scholarships to exceptional students who have demonstrated professional and personal excellence. When accepted to one of our programs, you are automatically considered for all merit scholarships. We also award several merit and need-based scholarships to qualified students.

Loans

Loan assistance is an option for students who are U.S. citizens and permanent residents through the Federal Loan Programs, including:

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
  • Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans
Private education loans are available for all students – U.S. citizens, permanent residents and international students.

GI & Veterans Benefits

Since 2009, we have participated in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program). For the 2014–2015 academic year, we will award annual grants through the Yellow Ribbon Program for up to 50 students on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to qualify for Yellow Ribbon Program benefits, you must be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits as indicated on the Certificate of Eligibility sent by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

For International Students

Admitted international students are automatically considered for all merit scholarships.

International students interested in financial aid are offered private student loans, most of which require a U.S. cosigner. The interest rate on private loans is variable and interest will begin to accrue once the loan is disbursed.
