Financial Aid

In order to receive financial aid for summer 2014, you must fill out the FAFSA for the 2013-2014 year.  Summer is the final term of the 2013-2014 year. This will determine if you are eligible for financial aid, and if eligible the amount of aid you qualify to receive. You also must also be admitted as an SOU graduate student. Since this is a master's program, only federal loans (not direct grants) are available. Alternative loans (loans that the Oregon University system gives to students) may also be available. Information about financial aid and the FAFSA is located on the financial aid website. Money is dispersed in late June.
