Financial Aid Available to Graduate & Doctoral Students
Graduate and doctoral students are eligible for Federal Stafford Loans as part of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process. The FAFSA must be completed each year to receive financial aid. Students must also be admitted as a matriculated student in a graduate or doctoral program in order to receive federal financial aid.
Complete your FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. Gonzaga University's school code is 003778.
Graduate and doctoral students are eligible to receive up to $20,500 in unsubsidized Stafford Loans each academic year. The interest rate for these loans is set at 5.41% for the 2013-2014 academic year. As of July 1, 2012 graduate students are no longer eligible to receive subsidized Stafford Loans.
