Graduate Student Financing Resources
U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents
Beyond the financial aid award you've been offered, there are several different financing options available to graduate students and their families:
- Graduate Direct PLUS Loan – The Graduate Direct PLUS Loan is a federal credit-based loan with a fixed interest rate that graduate students can apply for.
- Payment Plans – Drexel offers quarterly or semester payment plans to allow families to spread a balance due for a particular quarter or semester into monthly installments.
- Private Education Loans – Private education loans are available to students who are credit worthy and/or have an eligible cosigner. Drexel strongly recommends considering all other financing options before utilizing private education loans.
If you are a graduate international student, review financing options that are available to you.
