Federal Financial Aid

Master’s students can utilize federal student loan programs to pay for their degree. Candidates can borrow up to $20,500 in direct unsubsidized loans per academic year. Students can also borrow direct PLUS loans to cover any remaining costs.

A 10-year plan with regular repayments is standard, but students who cannot make the standard payments can opt for income-driven repayment plans or even defer repayment until they can afford it.

Applying is simple: Graduate students submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for federal student loans and other financial aid, as do bachelor’s degree students. Visit our One Stop Student Services portal for more information on applying for federal aid.

Please note that federal student loans are only available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who take enough credit hours per semester to qualify for half-time enrollment.

Additional Funding Opportunities

Employer Sponsorship

Many companies offer full or partial sponsorship for employees pursuing graduate degrees. Talk to your employer’s human resources department to see what benefits are available. Then, complete the following third-party billing agreement.

*State of Tennessee employees, including employees of the University of Tennessee System, are eligible for partial coverage of the $1,000 cost per credit hour rate (for up to three credit hours per academic term).

Military Aid

Haslam College of Business proudly participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program for eligible veterans enrolling in our online MS in business cybersecurity. For more details about this and other military benefits, visit the Veterans Success Center.
