For Graduate Students

The primary financial assistance available for St. Mary’s Graduate (master’s and doctoral) students include educational loans and in some cases, graduate assistantships and more.

During the fall and spring, a graduate student’s cost of attendance is based on full-time enrollment (nine credit hours per semester). To be considered for federal financial assistance, you must be considered half-time, which is a minimum of four credit hours during the fall and spring semesters. If your actual enrollment is different than this enrollment hours, please notify our office for review of your eligibility.
