Financing Your Graduate Education Series

Financing Grad School rev 03.03.2015

Are you considering attending graduate school in the future? A graduate degree is a great investment in your future and can lead to higher lifetime earnings than someone without a graduate degree. But before you submit your application you should really ask yourself:

  • How much does your chosen graduate program cost?
  • How you will pay for your graduate degree?
  • How do different funding options affect me and my future?

We can definitely help you answer those questions at our presentations. Please RSVP if you are planning on attending as we would like to prepare enough handouts for all attendees.
