Financial Aid & Scholarships

SFA provides graduate students traditional financial assistance through scholarships, state grants, work study programs, graduate assistantships, and student loans. Some assistance is based on merit and some on financial need.

To determine your financial eligibility and need for those funds which require it, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid and additional forms provided by the Financial Aid Office. Applications for assistance should be submitted to the Financial Aid Office by April 1st for priority consideration (See the Financial Aid Calendar). You will be notified by email of award within two to four weeks after receipt of all the required documentation.

If you have received an award from other resources (e.g. external scholarships), you should contact the Financial Aid Office to ensure these awards are processed properly.

You should also see the Need to Know Information relevant to applying for and receiving Financial Aid.
