Graduate Financial Aid

Financial aid for graduate and professional students is available from various sources (institutional, federal, and private) and includes fellowships, scholarships, grants, and loan programs. Financial aid awards are processed annually based on continued financial need, enrollment status, availability of funds, and maintaining satisfactory academic progress.

To apply for financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please see our 2024-2025 FAFSA Changes page for more information. FDU’s FAFSA Code is 002607.
