Graduate Studies Financial Assistance

Saint Joseph’s University is committed to providing information and resources to assist you in managing the costs of your graduate education, including need- and non-need-based loans and tuition financing options. The University has a tradition of extending educational opportunity to all academically-qualified students. Please contact Hawk Central for information on what options may be available to you.

You should also be aware of two important federal programs when calculating and reviewing your options. One is the College Cost Reductions and Access Act, which caps (Federal) loan repayment based on your family income, and forgives any remaining debt after making payments for 25 years, or for 10 years in public service jobs.


Saint Joseph’s also a proud participant in the "Yellow Ribbon" program agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs as part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill to improve financial aid for veterans.

Finally, a number of graduate programs offer assistantships which provide a stipend and/or tuition benefits. Explore these links or contact the director of the program you are interested in for further information.
