To apply for federal aid, prospective students should fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Stafford loans are available for undergraduate and 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.

If your employer is a Corporate Alliance Partner, you may qualify for programs that can help you discover career pathways in your field.
