All graduate students who are U.S. citizens and enrolled at least
half time (5 credit hours) per semester are eligible for student loans
administered through the Federal Stafford Loan Program. This eligibility
is not based on the amount of income reported in the previous tax year.
However, income reported may enable the student to receive a subsidized
loan (an interest-free loan while in school) as determined by the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Graduate students may
borrow up to $20,500 per nine-month academic year and $30,750 per
twelve-month calendar year, depending on the type of program and number
of credits for which the student has registered.
Application for this aid may be made on the Web at www.fafsa.ed.gov
or through the Franciscan University of Steubenville's Financial Aid Office at 740-283-6226. Work-study money is also available
through the director of the Student Work Opportunity Program (SWOP),
