Graduate Students Financial Aid

A college education is one of life’s biggest investments. Financial aid funding is available to help students pay their education-related expenses. Financial aid programs have enabled thousands of students to achieve their educational goals.

Barry University encourages students to use their own resources first to finance their education. When personal resources of the student are insufficient to meet the total cost of education, the Financial Aid Office makes every effort to supplement the student's resources with available financial aid.

Barry University participates in the full array of federal and state financial aid programs available to graduate students. In addition to government-funded programs, there is also program-specific assistance, such as scholarships, assistantships, as well as tuition discounts.  About 80% of our student body receives some form of financial aid. At Barry, we are committed to doing all we can to help you finance your education.

Financial Aid Graduate Student Loans

Barry University participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. Direct Loans provide students with a low-interest way to borrow money to pay for their higher education. The U.S. Department of Education is the lender for Direct Loans rather than a bank or other financial institution. Direct Loans are: 

Simple: You borrow directly from the federal government, who will assign your loans to a loan servicer. Typically all of your loans will be assigned to the same servicer, even if you receive Direct Loans at different schools.

Convenient: You will have online access to your Direct Loan account information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Flexible: You can choose from a variety of repayment plans that are designed to meet the needs of almost any borrower, and you can switch repayment plans as your needs change.

Veterans/Military Honorably Discharged Assistance Program

Florida residents who are active duty or honorably discharged members of the Armed Forces who served on or after Sept. 11, 2001, are degree-seeking and have unmet need (as determined by the results of the FAFSA) may be eligible to receive funding from the Honorably Discharged Graduate Assistance Program (HDGAP).

Funds are intended to assist with living expenses during holiday and semester breaks. This program was created by the 2014 Florida Legislature and must be funded every year.

Funding is not guaranteed and is determined by the Florida Legislature and the Florida Office of Student Financial Assistance. The per student amount is based on many factors, including the number of eligible students, the amount the state provides the university and other factors. The amount in the past has varied between $100 and $1000 per student.

Cost of attendance

Cost of attendance reflects the amount a typical student can expect for school-related expenses during the academic year and reflects the maximum financial aid a student may receive. Tuition is a direct cost that is deducted by the school from your financial aid award; all other items will vary depending upon personal costs. Students should create a budget to predict costs more precisely.

Notes: Tuition amount does not reflect any scholarships and/or discounts. Please contact your program of interest regarding availability.

Health insurance is included the living category.
