Graduate Student Financial Aid

If you are a degree seeking graduate student at FSU planning to take 6 credits or more per semester, you may apply for federal loans to help cover the cost of attending FSU.

  • First, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year to apply for federal loans, which are the only federal resource available to graduate students. Please note that beginning July 1, 2012 there will be no Subsidized Stafford Loans for graduate students. All federal loans offered to graduate students will be unsubsidized and interest bearing. 
  • You may also consult the Graduate Scholarship section of this website for more information on graduate scholarships you may apply for. These scholarships must be applied for separately.

  • In addition to scholarships, many departments offer Graduate Assistantships, which must be applied for separately. Please see the Graduate Assistantship information on the Graduate Services webpage for more information on how to apply for these awards.
