Financial Aid Eligibility

Students in master's degree programs may qualify for federal or private loans. Federal loan eligibility is usually limited to students taking at least two units of credit in the quarter for which they receive aid. As at most universities, Northwestern University aid, assistantships and stipends are reserved for Ph.D. and MFA candidates.

Graduate students should direct questions to the Chicago Office of Financial Aid or by calling 312-503-8722.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid

The FAFSA is not required as part of your application, but we encourage all U.S. citizens and permanent residents to complete the FAFSA if they would like to be considered for any loans.
