Students enrolled in a graduate certificate program may qualify for financial aid. You should note the following distinction:
- Degree-seeking students taking the certificate as part of their graduate program can use their existing financial aid to apply toward the cost of the program.
- Non-degree seeking certificate students traditionally pay out of pocket or use private student loans to cover the cost of their courses.
In addition, certificate programs qualify students for V.A. benefits. Contact Veteran Services for more details.
