Graduate Student Information

Graduate students are eligible for a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford loan provided that they are enrolled as a matriculated student in a degree-seeking program. Additionally, students must be enrolled in at least two credit-bearing courses that apply to their degree program. For more information about this loan, please visit our student loans page.

In addition to pursuing a student loan, graduate students can also sign up for an interest-free monthly payment plan through Nelnet/Tuition Management Systems (TMS). This option allows students to make a series of ten payments over the course of the academic year – five payments for the fall semester and five payments for the spring semester. There is a registration fee that must be paid when signing up for this option.For more information, please visit Nelnet/TMS at or call 800-722-4867.
