Many students choose to take out a loan to pay for all or part of the costs associated with attending the Master's in Marketing program.
Loan programs available to MSMM students include:
- Federally sponsored (Stafford) loans – for U.S. citizens only
- Alternative private loans – for U.S. and international students
All offer low interest loans repayable upon completion of your degree.
Eligibility for need-based grants, loans and scholarships is determined by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form available on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Many funds are limited, so those students who have their FAFSA completed by March 1 each academic year receive priority processing.
Applicants must have been admitted to the MMF program before The University of Arizona Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) will make financial aid awards. Graduate students must be enrolled at least halftime in order to receive federal loans.
