Financial aid in the form of work and loans may be available to eligible graduate students at Morehead State University. Under the Federal or Institutional Work-study Programs, graduate students (other than those on graduate assistantships) may be employed on campus.
Low-interest federal loans available to graduate students include Federal Perkins Loans and Federal Direct Stafford Loans. Interest rates on these loans range from 5-8.25 percent and, in general, repayment does not begin until six to nine months after the student leaves school or ceases to be at least a half-time student. Eligibility and award amounts are determined based on enrollment on the last day to add a full semester class per the University's Academic Calendar. Students must be enrolled in at least six (6) credit hours on that date to receive a Federal Direct Stafford Loan.
To apply for financial aid, students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.edu.gov and an MSU Student Financial Aid Personal Data Sheet. The Personal Data Sheet is available at www.moreheadstate.edu/finaid and in the Office of Enrollment Services, 100 Admissions Center. The phone number is (606) 783-2000.
