Graduate Tuition and Aid

Investing in your education is a major decision, and DePaul is committed to helping make your graduate business education more affordable. We have a host of scholarships available for domestic and international graduate students, as well as for DePaul alumni who return to enhance their educational credentials.

Tuition

Tuition in the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business is $1,020 per credit hour for the 2016-2017 academic year. There are significant opportunities for students to lower their tuition costs by thousands of dollars through course waivers based on expertise, scholarships and the Double Demon alumni tuition discount program.

International Student Tuition Prepayment Plan

For some international student applicants, exchange rate fluctuations can make planning for a graduate business education challenging. To alleviate this uncertainty, DePaul offers the International Prepayment Plan (IPP), which gives international students the option to prepay tuition and fees in U.S. dollars.

The plan is currently only available to international students who are admitted to Kellstadt's specialized master's programs for Fall Quarter 2016 or subsequent quarters.

For more information about how you can take advantage of the IPP, please contact the Kellstadt office at KGSB@depaul.edu or (312) 362-8810.

Applying for Financial Aid

U.S. citizens and permanent residents (green card holders) may apply for federal financial aid. Go to fafsa.ed.gov and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. DePaul's university code is 001671. You'll need to complete a FAFSA for each academic year that you want to receive financial aid.

Federal Direct Stafford Loans allow students to borrow money from the federal government to pay for university expenses. These loans are processed directly through the Office of Financial Aid. This office will provide you with the necessary paperwork; to borrow you do not need to contact a lender.

Direct loans:
Unsubsidized Stafford: Eligibility for unsubsidized direct loans is not based on financial need. You may borrow the cost of education minus all other financial aid you receive, up to the annual direct loan maximum. However, you must either pay the interest while you are enrolled, or it will be accrued and capitalized to the principal. Repayment of the principal is deferred until you graduate or cease to be enrolled at least half time.

Once your FAFSA information has been received and processed, you will be able to accept your student loans online through your Campus Connect account.

Financial Aid for Military Veterans

DePaul participates in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which covers almost all tuition expenses for veterans who qualify for the Post 9/11 GI Bill at 100 percent of the benefit.

To learn more about Veterans financial aid at DePaul, go to the Veteran Student page or contact the Office of Veteran Affairs.
