Funding Your Education
Earning an advanced degree is making an investment in yourself—and your future. A degree can open the door to more career choices and increase your earning potential. In times of economic uncertainty, possibly one of the best investments you can make is in your education, and in the professional skills that can lay the foundation for your future.
Most students rely on a combination of scholarships, loans, and Federal Work-Study opportunities to finance their graduate education and living expenses. Our Office of Financial Aid will help you understand your options and answer any questions you may have.
The Value of Education
According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ most current national population survey, the higher the level of education an individual completes, the greater a positive effect on his or her median weekly earnings. In addition, there is less chance of being unemployed.
Our Office of Financial Aid will help you understand your options and answer any questions you have. Our financial aid counselors are available for phone or in-person consultations. They also host financial aid webinars throughout the year on the financial aid process and funding your education. You can reach the Office of Financial Aid by calling 312.662.4150 or via email.
