Graduate Financial Aid
Limestone College is committed to helping our graduate students find ways to finance their education. Graduate students are eligible to receive Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and can also apply for the Grad Plus Loan. In order for us to consider you for these funds and to determine eligibility, please complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) no later than May 1st of each year. The FAFSA can be completed at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Be sure to indicate on the FAFSA that you are seeking a Master’s Degree. Students can apply for the Grad Plus Loan online at www.studentloans.gov. You will need your 4 digit FAFSA PIN to log in.
Graduate students can also apply for private education loans to help with the costs of the program. We have compiled a list of preferred lenders, which can be accessed via the Financial Aid Webpage under the “Quick Links” tab. From there, select the “Preferred Lenders” tab and follow the prompts.
Graduate students are not eligible for institutional scholarships, or for federal or state grants.
Graduate students may also be eligible for certain Veterans Benefits to help with the costs of tuition.
MBA Program at Limestone College is designed to allow students to take courses each term (each term consists of one 8-week period). To be eligible for full-time VA benefits, students must enroll in 9 credit hours per semester which equates to one class each term. By following this format, students receiving VA benefits must be able to register for classes for the entire semester (July 1 – December 31 and/or January 2 – June 30). By registering, students may be eligible to receive VA benefits to cover tuition expenses. Students receiving VA benefits must
sign a waiver, allowing Limestone College to re-evaluate their eligibility each term.
Failure to enroll in a sequential course each term may result in a loss of full-time VA benefits.
If you have questions regarding your eligibility for Veterans Benefits please contact the Veteran’s Benefits Coordinator at 864-488-7151 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
