Financial Aid

Financing your education

It is our goal at Penn to make education accessible to talented students from the widest possible range of backgrounds. Master of Liberal Arts and Master of Philosophy students are eligible to apply for financial aid, and limited guaranteed student loans are available for those taking at least two courses per semester. All domestic applicants interested in their loan eligibility should complete the FASFA form after applying to their program. Penn’s Student Financial Services (SFS) office is available to help prospective and current students navigate the process. For more information on financing your graduate studies, visit their website for Graduate and Professional Students or contact SFS.

If you intend to complete the degree as a working professional, you may be able to take advantage of tuition benefits offered by your employer. If you are a full-time Penn employee, learn more about Penn’s tuition benefits package.
