Financial Aid 

To apply for financial aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available annually beginning October 1. To explore and understand available financing options, we recommend that you file the FAFSA no later than February 15, prior to the start of the academic year. It is not necessary to be accepted for admission prior to submitting a FAFSA.


Federal Student Loan Programs 

Federal student loan programs offer:

  • Fixed interest rates, set annually by the federal government
  • Income-driven repayment plans
  • Loan forgiveness plans

Private Loans

Alternative loans are available through private lenders. Eligibility is generally based on a borrower’s employment history, credit score, debt-to-income ratio, and enrollment status. Students are encouraged to explore federal student loan options before applying for alternative student loans.

Federal Work Study

Federal work study funds part-time jobs for students with financial need, as determined by the FAFSA. Earnings are paid directly to the student for hours worked. To qualify, students must submit the FAFSA by March 1 (prior to the start of the academic year) and indicate on the FAFSA that they want to be considered for federal work study.

AuD Assistantship Opportunities

Tuition waiver amounts and graduate assistantships are determined by the Audiology Admissions Committee. All students are considered for these assistantships and there is no additional application to be considered. Assistantships are announced at the time of acceptance offers. These are non-renewable assistantships offered to selected first-year AuD students based on the Audiology Admissions Committee’s evaluation of the application for admission and interview. Approximately 6 assistantships will be offered.

An assistantship provides a $3,000 - $7,000 waiver for the first year’s tuition plus a $2,500+ stipend for 150 hours of work (at approximately $14.25 per hour) to be completed during the course of the first academic year. Work assignments vary based on the needs of the program.  Students are paid an hourly wage and are paid monthly based on hours worked. There are no assistantships available in year two or year three of the program due to the nature of our accelerated curriculum.
