Scholarships and financial aid

This program is currently not approved for federal financial aid by the U.S. Department of Education (ED).

There are a number of financial aid options worth exploring on our financial aid page. To apply for federal aid, prospective students should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Stafford loans are available for graduate study. These are direct unsubsidized loans, not based on financial need. Unlike subsidized loans, Stafford loan interest will accrue while in the program. Making interest payments while in school will help reduce the amount of principal that would otherwise build up, reducing your end cost.

There are also scholarships and private loans available for Strayer students.

More than 500 organizations – including corporations and community colleges – invest in their employees by working with Strayer University to offer access to discounted education programs. If your employer is a Corporate Alliance Partner, you may qualify for education benefits that can help you discover career and educational pathways related to your field.

Private loans

Non-federal loans may pay the difference between the cost of attendance and the total of loans and grants received from other tuition assistance programs. The terms and conditions of federal loans are often more favorable than private loans and should be considered before exploring private loans.

Military tuition assistance

Scholarships are offered to eligible students currently serving in the military, as well as military spouses. Strayer is also approved by Veterans Affairs to accept and process veteran education benefits. Learn more about the Strayer University active military assistance program here.
