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 Student Financial Services 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 available to applicants of the online M.S. in Cyber Security program.

Financial Aid

Need-based financial aid

Need-based assistance for all students is facilitated by the Student Financial Services Office.

Loans

The federal government provides loan options for graduate students, even if they do not qualify for need-based financial aid. The TU Student Financial Services 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.
