Tuition + Financial Aid



An MBA is within your reach

The College of Business offers two types of financial aid to its prospective traditional students: graduate assistantships and scholarships. The university's Scholarships + Financial Aid Office is available to help you with FAFSA forms, private loans, grants, and other financial aid opportunities. 

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistants work closely with one or more business professors on academic research, grant administration, and special event planning. Several of our recent graduate assistants have co-authored publications with professors.

These are hourly paid positions, where you are considered a part-time employee of the university. Assignments are determined based on the merits of students' applications (GMAT scores, GPAs, and work experience), as well as skill sets and interests. To apply for a position, complete the Graduate Assistantship Application Form.

Additionally, some departments throughout the university request business graduate assistants for help with research, consulting services, and special projects support. These are also paid positions, and the College of Business connects the departments to appropriate students for matches. Interested students should contact the MBA Office.

Academic Scholarships

The College of Business offers a few tuition remission scholarships to a select group of MBA candidates. These scholarships are based on academic merit, considering the student's GPA and GMAT score. All part-time and fast-track, on-campus, MBA applicants are considered for scholarships as they submit a completed application. No special forms are necessary.

Programs for Veterans of Military Service

The Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid has provided specific information regarding the various programs availlable to veterans of military service. If you are interested in learning more, please visit Kathy Gros, Director of Student Records and Registration Services, is the University liaison for Veterans Affairs. Kathy can be reached via

Employer Reimbursement 

If your employer offers a tuition reimbursement plan, you may be eligible for a payment extension of 90% of your tuition and fees.  Although Transcripts and the diploma are not released until the final payment is received, this deferral may be helpful to you. Please review the requirements here for your program of study.

NOTE:  A new Employer Reimbursement Agreement form must be submitted each semester.
