Requirements for Financial Aid
To qualify for financial aid you must:
- Be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen
- Be accepted and enrolled at least half-time in an approved program
- Be in good academic standing
- Not be in default of any previous federal student loans
Financial aid for graduate students is based on enrollment level rather than financial need. All students must reapply for aid each year.
Financial Aid Application Instructions
In order for us to be able to determine your financial aid eligibility, you must first complete the steps below.
- Complete and submit the 2021-2022 Graduate & Professional Studies Student Financial Aid Application Form
- Complete the 2021–22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
(Note: Endicott College’s school code is 002148. Endicott will receive your FAFSA information electronically within 3-5 business days.)
Financial aid applications must be submitted annually. Each financial aid year begins with the summer semester and ends with the spring semester.
Graduate Student Loan Information
Financial aid available for graduate students include federal Stafford and Graduate PLUS loans, as well as additional private loan options.*
When you apply for financial aid as a graduate student, we will determine whether or not you are eligible for up to $20,500 federal unsubsidized Stafford loan, for which the current interest rate for graduate students is 5.28%. If the cost of your program exceeds that amount, additional loan options include:
- Federal Graduate PLUS Loan
For Direct PLUS Loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 2020, and before July 1, 2021, the interest rate is 6.28%. This is a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan.
- Private Loans
To help our students and their parents navigate the increasingly complex private loan landscape, Endicott has partnered with a company called Elm Select. To review a list of commonly used private loan options that the College has evaluated and found to be reputable, please visit Elm Select. However, you are welcome to borrow from any lender you choose without penalty whether or not that lender is listed on the website.
- *Students in Nursing programs are encouraged to review the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) Fact Sheet to determine whether or not they are eligible. Questions about eligibility can be directed to Nancy Meedzan, the Director of the Ph.D. Nursing program.
