Financial Aid

HPU is proud to be able to offer various options to help our graduate students fund their education. Graduate student applicants are considered for any academic awards at the time of admission and/or through the academic departments. Institutional scholarships/grants are applied towards tuition. 

Students who file the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) may be eligible for Federal Stafford Loans.  Graduate students may borrow up to $20,500 each year in Stafford Loans depending on Cost of Attendance and any outside or institutional awards you may have.  Your Cost of Attendance (budget) will vary depending on your status as a fulltime or part time student, and on the graduate program in which you are enrolled. To be eligible for Federal Direct Stafford Loans, graduate students must be accepted and enrolled in at least 5 credits in an eligible degree program. Capstone classes less than 5 credits and certificate programs do not qualify for federal aid.

In addition to Federal Direct Stafford Loans, graduate students are also eligible to apply for Graduate PLUS loans.  The Federal Graduate PLUS Loan (Grad PLUS Loan) enables eligible graduate students with good credit histories to borrow funds in addition to their Stafford loans up to their Cost of Attendance.
