How will I pay my tuition?

Students have a variety of options to fund their tuition. Some of the frequently used funding options are included below, but we encourage you to consult with TU’s Financial Aid Office and/or a financial adviser when determining the best options available.

Scholarship opportunities

Merit-based scholarships – determined by factors such as GPA, test scores and work experience – may be automatically awarded to applicants to the online M.S. in Cyber Security program. There is no separate application or process, and financial need is not considered when awarding merit-based scholarships.

  • Online M.S. in Cyber Security students have the opportunity to receive up to a 50% tuition scholarship.

Financial aid

Need-based financial aid

Need-based assistance for all students is facilitated by the Financial Aid office.

Loans

The federal government provides loan options for graduate students, even if they do not qualify for need-based financial aid. The TU Financial Aid Office works with two types of U.S. federal government loans:

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized loan: This is generally the lowest-cost loan available and is made in amounts up to $20,500 every academic year. To qualify, you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, take at least six credits per semester and submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
  • Federal grad PLUS loan: If you need to borrow more, then a grad PLUS loan can generally cover the remainder. You will need to submit the application for a federal Direct loan prior to applying for a PLUS loan.

If federal loans are unavailable or insufficient, we can help you explore private or alternative education loans. Unlike federal loans, private loans do not require a FAFSA to apply. Private loans are not based on need and approval is generally based on creditworthiness and ability to repay. Some students may need to apply with a creditworthy co-signer. Interest rates, grace periods, repayment options and fees are determined by the lender and can vary considerably from lender to lender; generally, they charge higher rates than those charged for federal loans.
