Financial Aid (Student Loans)
In addition to any employer financial support and a student's personal funds, assistance in the form of federal loans is available to Executive MBA students. The only criteria for federal loans are U.S. citizenship and enrollment in a graduate school program. Students are eligible to borrow up to $20,500 in federal loans per year for a total of $41,000 over the 20-month period of the program.
The Executive MBA Program is divided into two loan periods for student loans covering the majority of the first four semester payments. Beyond the student loans during these four semesters, Graduate PLUS Loans or private loans are also available.
The fifth and final semester payment may require a student to use personal funds or only Graduate PLUS Loans and private loans as federal student loans are no longer available at this point.
