Many of the program’s students utilize a number of payment options including tuition payment plans, employer reimbursement, Tax Relief Act of 1997 (TRA 97), scholarships and fellowships, and U.S. federal governmental loans including the unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan, and the Grad Plus Loan.
When thinking through making financial arrangements for your doctoral journey, please know that tuition is calculated on an annual basis cost but it is charged by trimester. The tuition is reduced to one-half of the annual amount at the point of reaching candidacy.
Deferment of previous loans
Students who are enrolled in the PhD program may have previous federal student loans deferred while they are enrolled.
Some states require students to maintain full-time status to be eligible for deferment of state-funded loans. The financial aid office can assist students on the specifics of their loan regulations.
Feel free to contact the program office (937-769-1341 or firstname.lastname@example.org) with additional questions.
