Loans cannot be processed until the FAFSA information and transcripts have been received and reviewed in St. Louis. A majority of graduate students who get aid receive Stafford Loans.
Financial Aid FORMS
Students must be enrolled at least half-time to receive loans. For each nine-week session, half-time is three credit hours for graduate students. Normally, a student must file a loan request for both Spring (Spring 1 and Spring 2) or Fall terms (Fall 1 and Fall 2).
When a student changes his or her enrollment status, a "Change of Loan" form must be submitted.
There are some private scholarships and grants available through private sources. The University does not track these scholarship offerings but an Internet search will provide you with some options.
- Student loan applications are accepted throughout the academic year.
- Approximately 4-6 weeks after you submit the application you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). This is your copy for your records. Review it carefully; if there are any corrections to be made, please note the corrections, sign it, and send it to the Financial Aid Office in St. Louis.
- Once all information is received by the Financial Aid Office in St. Louis, you will receive an award message.
