Graduate Financial Aid
Your education is an invaluable investment toward your future and Edgewood College is available to guide you.
Graduate students may apply for a Federal Stafford Loan package. A Federal Stafford loan is a low interest (currently fixed at 5.41%) loan. Origination and disbursement fees up to 3% may be deducted. Repayment begins six months after you graduate, leave school, or drop below half time status.* Graduate students are eligible for Unsubsidized Stafford Loans. Interest is charged from the time the loan is disbursed until it is paid in full.
Students admitted as graduate degree-seeking status (including Urban and Rural Economic Development participants) are eligible for up to $20,500 in Federal Stafford Loans per year. In order to be eligible to receive aid, you must be enrolled for a minimum of four credits at Edgewood each semester. Nine credits is considered full-time status.
