Financial Aid

Financing your education

Students in Penn’s Nontraditional Graduate Studies program are currently not eligible for institutional scholarships or federal financial aid due to its non-degree status. However, there are alternative independent options for financing your education, including private loans. Visit Penn’s Student Registration and Financial Services website to learn more about private alternative loans.

If you intend to enroll as a working professional, you may be able to take advantage of tuition reimbursement benefits offered by your employer. If you are a full-time Penn employee, learn more about Penn’s tuition benefits package at Penn’s Human Resources website.
