Paying for Courses

Financial Assistance

There are a number of financial assistance options to help defray the costs of enrolling in a graduate professional program.  These include Stafford loans, graduate PLUS loans, military programs, and loans from private lenders.  Through myPurdue, you can monitor your financial aid funding and make sure the proper payments are made in a timely fashion.

Installment Plans

If you're enrolling in the fall or spring, you can sign up for a payment plan to avoid making one large payment each semester.  You'll be charged 25 percent of your fees when you enroll, as well as 8 percent APR on the amount deferred.  You'll then pay off the balance in three equal payments over the course of the semester.
