  1. Hey there! Any international students with experience of taking loans in the US without a co-signer? I've come across Mpower and Prodigy but don't personally know anyone who's used them. My husband was able to take Discover without a co-signer because his university made it possible, but it isn't the same case for me. Are there any other options for people who don't have a potential co-signer in the US (other than taking loans from our home countries)? I'm from India, currently in the US on F2 and going to Columbia for Ms in Strategic Communication later this year. Thanks!
  2. I'm super excited to have been accepted here but am kinda panicking about the tuition. Northwestern was my top choice but I'm not sure I want to be in that much debt! But I also don't want to regret not going since it was my top choice!! Anyone else feeling the same or know how current/past students are managing to pay?
  3. I am trying to decide between which two Biotechnology programs to attend in the fall. The first program is the NYU Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship Program which is great because of its interdisciplinary curriculum in both biotechnology and business. They also offerered me a generous scholarship. On visiting the campus and speaking with faculty it seems promising. I was selected for an additional scholarship and feel like the financial aid office is forthcoming with working with me to cover tuition costs. The research areas are good with opportunities to do research at the renowned memorial Sloan Kettering cancer center. Their career center also seems to be very effective with support for internships, interviews, jobs and whatnot and NY is at the center of it all. There is however no denying that cost of living and accommodation in the city is ridiculously high. On the other hand, Northwestern University's Biotechnology program comes with a minor in Engineering management/ Entrepreneurship with a similar flexibility to NYU but with a seemingly greater concentration on developing wet lab skills. It's location in Evanston, IL a Chicago school town is nice and it's a large campus. On visiting the campus, the faculty also seem welcoming and they have interesting personal development courses, site-visits to biotechnology companies on the east coast for networking, career fairs and great internship assistance. The tuition is much higher than that of NYU and the scholarship while generous, doesn't cover much. I would have to look to loans and aid to cover the chunk. The research areas are also nice with opportunities to work in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and cancer biology at the northwestern school of medicine. At this point, I don't know which school to consider because I would gladly go to any of them as they are both great schools and I'm privileged to be considered for both. I don't know if Northwestern is worth taking out large loans for in comparison to NYU that the tuition is mostly covered by scholarship. I can't imagine which program would make me stand out with limitless opportunities at the end of the duration. I need any suggestions, opinions, ideas and help that would enable me to see some light.. Thank you!!
  4. Hi, My university has not yet sent the official acceptance letter because " My co-supervisors are still discussing about funding". What does this mean ? During the interview my PI mentioned that I will receive a " small" stipend, which may be low compared to some colleges but enough to survive in that region. She mentioned nothing about the tuition. Are they discussing about the stipend amount or the tuition amount ? If they are not going to offer me tuition then I will accept my second choice. I do not know how to politely email and ask about it either, I do not want to sound like I have got my sights on the funding alone and not the actual research. This is my top choice PhD program. any help will be much appreciated.
  5. Hello, I I received an offer from a school with partial scholarship and a graduate assistantship. I asked them about the type of assistantship and the stipend, but they basically did not give me an answer. Just said that it can be either an RA or TA, 10h/w or 20h/w and the information of the amount that will be paid for assistantship is not available yet and only will be in May. I had to give them an answer in a short time, and since I did not hear back from the other schools yet I said yes. But I have no idea what I will get. This is in New York and a STEM field, but not a PhD and most of the things I have read through search is related to PhDs. I know I am lucky that I even got the offer since I am only doing masters. But I do not even know if the funding will cover tuition. And they are not answering my questions about this, I tried. They just say the information is not available. Was I not supposed to get a detailed offer letter? I prepared and sent my I20 form like there is no assistantship at all as they asked. But I do not know what to do as I am also waiting for other schools which will give me answers really late since I applied late.

    UIC MHA Grad Program

    Hi there, Have any UIC MHA applicants received notice of acceptance or denial? Also curious to hear plans for tuition. i.e. assistantship, grants, scholarships, etc. Thanks for you time.
  8. Does anyone know how financial aid in grad school works? I went all through undergrad with not having to take out loans because financial aid covered all of it (i attend sac state). I was wondering if the same can happen for grad school? Is anyone in the advanced standing msw program that can tell me how financial aid goes for them? Or anyone in the regular 2 yr msw program. I've noticed that advanced standing programs are roughly 17,000 for the one year. Is it possible for financial aid to cover all of that with just grants??
  9. Hi! I'm making my decision as to where to go to graduate school next fall to get my master's in social work. I've been accepted to USC, NYU, and Columbia and I'm having a very very very hard time making a decision! I've received scholarships from NYU and USC, which help with the tuition, but by no means cover it. With all being said and done USC will still wind up costing me about 80k for the two years (before financial aid) NYU will wind up costing me 60k (before financial aid) and Columbia will be a whopping 100k (before financial aid or scholarship info). I want to focus on clinical work and eventually open a private practice working with adults. I currently live in Los Angeles and would LOVE to find a valid reason to stay here. I went to college in NY so I'm not entirely opposed to moving there, but I do think I want to end up back in Los Angeles to practice. Does anyone have any input as to which school has the best clinical program?? I've heard USC sort of churns out MSW students, but I think it looks like an amazing school. NYU also looks incredible, I'm just not positive I want to move back to New York, and to be honest I think Columbia is the lowest on my list because it focuses more on policy. So any input would be AMAZING!!! Thanks

    How do people finance master's degrees?

    Hello! I am wondering how people usually pay for masters degrees if they are not supported with an assistantship or fellowship? Loans, financial aid through FAFSA, work, etc? Is working part time while pursuing a full time master's feasible?

    Merit Aid for MSW Programs

    Financing your MSW is a popular subject here, so hoping to crowdsource thoughts: What are the programs that offer the most merit aid that is not tied to need? FAFSA has determined that I do not qualify for any grant based need/scholarships, and while I was admitted to Smith, their merit aid is tied to need. I believe I have a strong professional and academic background to get merit-based scholarships. I am not in the hole financially, thank goodness, but I only make 55k/year and have little savings. Taking out loans upwards of 100k+ for an MSW is terrifying. State schools for in-state tuition aren't a great option as I live in DC and we don't have a public MSW program/there is no tuition reciprocity for other programs in nearby states. Other advice? Thanks in advance!

    AuD costs

    I am applying to 4 AuD programs. Cost is a huge influence for me, and so I have been calculating all the costs for the different programs. This has been challenging since every school has a different way of breaking tuition down, and I am finding some to be much more clear than others! Is there anyone else out there that is doing this for these schools and could verify I did this right? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Also, I am calculating resident costs, since I am applying to schools only on the Western Exchange Program (since I am from Colorado). The schools I am applying to are: University of Utah (Salt Lake City), University of Colorado (Boulder), University of Northern Colorado, and University of Washington (Seattle) Here is what I have so far! · University of Utah: Cost if resident: o First year Fall semester (13 credits): approx. $4,519.34 o First year Spring semester (12 credits): approx. $4,270.31 o First year Summer semester (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Second year Fall semester (11 credits): approx. $4,021.28 o Second year Spring semester (11 credits): approx.$4,021.28 o Second year Summer semester (6 credits):approx.$2,732.43 o Third year Fall semester (11.5 credits): approx. $4,270.31 o Third year Spring semester (10.5 credits): approx.$3,763.51 o Fourth year Fall (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Fourth year Spring (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Total cost for resident= $38,115.68 University of Colorado Boulder First Year: resident, using estimator · Fall Semester: 13 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 10 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer Semester: 1 credit o Credit costs: $1,860 o Fees: $780 Second Year: · Fall Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer semester: 8 credits o Credit costs: $4,960 o Fees: $927 Third Year: · Fall Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 Fourth Year: 9 credits · Fall Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 · Spring Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 Total Cost: $57,433

    I was admitted to the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work at the University of Southern California! I am so excited because it is my dream school! I really didn't think I would get in so I was not prepared for the cost of the tuition. USC is Top 12 Social Work program and I want to go their so badly, BUT is the cost of the tuition worth it??? I am waiting to hear back from Cal State LA as well. Would greatly appreciate feedback!!!

    USC MSW VAC Scholarships

    I just received my acceptance letter (email) without any information about financial aid. I wanted to ask: has anyone NOT received ANY grants or scholarships for this program? I applied the last week of February incase anyone was wondering the duration to hear back on your application.
  15. hello everyone I received my acceptance email to UoP and I'm excited and terrified at the same. Now that the adrenaline has died down, I'm doing a little research to get an idea on how much this would cost but I can't seem to get a clear picture from their website. From this forum, all I'm getting is that the program is pricey and that the 15-mo program is about 60k. Are there any current students or recent graduates in this forum who can given me an idea? I was accepted into the 24-mo program so info on that specifically will be greatly appreciated. thank you!
  16. I was looking into Columbia's Ph.D and Ed.D programs and was unable to find clear information on how Teacher's College handles Ph.D funding. On the website it says "Ph.D. students normally receive the annual prevailing stipend and appropriate tuition and health fees for five years, provided that they remain in good academic standing and, in the case of student officers, have discharged responsibly their pedagogical or research duties." Other programs that I have looked at have more or less stated explicitly that all Ph.D programs have their tuition covered for 5 years. Does anyone know if tuition is covered for Ed.D programs/Ph.D programs at Teachers' College? What's the funding like (if any) for these programs? Thanks for your help!
  17. Hey yall. I tried to search through the forum but I only went through the first 3 pages and found nothing so I just thought I'd start a thread. I'm planning on moving to Arizona in a few weeks and plan to stay there until I hear back from schools for Fall 2017. I've lived in Texas all my life, graduated from a University here in Texas. My question is - Will I still be able to qualify for in-state tuition for Texas schools for the Fall of 2017? Everywhere I have looked says that as long as I had paid in-state tuition at a University in Texas for more than one semester, then I should qualify but I just wanted to hear someone else confirm it from their own experiences. I really hope that I will still qualify for in-state tuition in Texas.
  18. I am looking to go back to school this upcoming year and have been looking at my options to pay for school. I really should have thought about this prior to obtaining my undergraduate degree and was curious if anyone had experience in this area? My parents funded my first undergraduate degree, and as for my second I had to take out loans on my own. I was wondering what are my options in terms of graduate study? How can I pay for school? I do not want to have more debt that just accumulates interest in the future. Anyone have any thoughts in this area?
  19. Hi everybody. I am a domestic student for master's degree in mechanical engineering at University of California, Irvine starting next fall. There is a Nonresident Supplemental Tuition that every nonresidents of the State of California should pay. I know that I am not currently a California resident. I wonder is there any possibility that after I would become a resident of California they would return this Tuition to me? I know that for some states it is possible but I am not sure about California. I searched the University's website but I did not find anything. Please share with me if you are aware of that. I would really appreciate it.
  20. Hello everyone, I am a Macedonian student that wants to pursue an MA in the US. To give you an idea about monthly salary over here - it is roughly $400-500 with a university degree. It would be impossible to enroll in a university where I have to pay over $35 000 yearly without my parents selling our house, or me getting a job and saving up for the next 30 years or so. Now that you get the idea, any scholarships that you have gotten, or other funding opportunities that an international student in the US would be eligible for would help me a lot and other students with the same aspirations, I believe. Thanks for your suggestions!
  21. Hi all, I'm considering going to University of Michigan for a Masters of Social Work. I am technically a resident of Florida, but I have lived in Michigan for about four years now, and worked here for two. Does this make me a candidate for in-state residency? Any experience with this? It would save me about 15k in tuition!
  22. I would like to ask for advice, sentiment, etc. I have been admitted to 2 public health PhD programs for Fall 2012. Both are good programs and I could see myself going to either one. The problem is... The 1st school has admitted me with tuition paid for, while the 2nd has admitted me with the possibility of funding. The 1st had requested that I give them my answer by March 1st (I have since asked for an extension and they granted me until March 6th), or run the risk of losing funding. There is no way the second school is going to be able to tell me about funding by next tuesday (the 6th). From what I can tell, this contradicts the Council of Graduate School's (not legally binding) agreement... (http://www.myacpa.or...ionJune2005.pdf) I think my hand has been forced and I will accept to the 1st, knowing I may recind my acceptance. I really don't want to do this, but I don't think I have a choice. What do you think? Is anyone else in this situation?
  23. Hey! I am a Brooklyn resident thinking about getting a Library Science degree. I've worked in various libraries for about 3 years now and while I think I eventually want to go back to school for a PhD, in the short term I'd like to continue working in libraries, and I'd have more opportunities with an ML(I)S (hopefully). I don't want to go into debt for this, and I don't want to leave New York City. I had some good conversations with people at Queens College CUNY and St. John's University- both ALA accredited programs- and with my undergrad GPA and in-state status, I would be able to afford the degree, and continue to work while I went to school. But these aren't exactly prestigious schools, and I'm wondering if that will make a difference? I've heard that job experience trumps where you got your MLS degree- and I have experience working for several major public institutions. Any thoughts on either school or on my plan in general? Thanks!!!
  24. Hello all, I am from the US and was recently admitted McGill's Ph.D. program in History. While still waiting to hear from a few more US-based programs, I am giving this offer some seriously consideration: $20k guaranteed in annual stipend for all 4 years plus approx. $4500 per semester when serving as a TA for the department. At the same time, however, I am expected to pay full graduate-level tuition, which is estimated at $16k annually for years 1 and 2, then $4k year 3, onward, once I enter dissertation stage and go into 'part-time' status. In comparison to the retail cost of tuition at most graduate programs in the US ($40k or more per year if I had pursued law school!), I realize this sum isn't so large, but all my American peers currently at various Ph.D. programs across the US are, stipends aside, not paying a dime for tuition. So I am just wondering if this is a situation faced by other international students getting offers from Canadian schools? Maybe this is normal, especially for the humanities which may not be as well funded as other disciplines? Thanks for any insight you can provide! Cheers.
  25. on my acceptance letter to university of michigan they wrote " All types of support will provide similar funding with a stipend of $2,200 a month, plus tuition, fees, and health benefits." does this mean that i would actually get $2200 and that there is a tuition remission or it means that they take the tuition off that?? in other words what am i left with?
