Information on affording graduate studies.
The pursuit of an advanced degree is an investment in your future. To prepare for this investment, it is important to make sure that you are financially ready to take on the costs. SUNY Oswego participates in the Direct Loan (DL) program, where the lender is the U.S. Department of Education rather than a bank or other financial institutions.
SUNY Oswego's Federal school code is: 002848
The standard repayment term for a Federal Stafford Loan is 10 years and can be extended up to 30 years based on the amount borrowed. Repayment is deferred until six months after graduation (or cease at least half-time enrollment) and carries a fixed rate of 6.8%. Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan limit is $20,500 per academic year. Interest will begin to accrue once the loan is disbursed. No additional loan application is necessary.
Federal Direct Grad PLUS loan
This program can be used by graduate or professional students who need to borrow more than the maximum unsubsidized loan amount to meet educational cost. In addition to FAFSA, this program requires a separate application and approval is based upon a review of your credit history - an applicant must have no adverse credit.
There is a 4% loan fee on the amount borrowed and the Grad PLUS has a 7.9% fixed interest rate. Interest will begin to accrue once the loan is disbursed. Repayment begins 60 days after the last disbursement; however, a student enrolled at least half-time is eligible for in-school deferment.
Standard repayment term is 10 years; can be extended up to 25 years based on amount borrowed. Our office can provide you with the application instructions once you have completed a FAFSA.
Federal Perkins Loan
This is a low-cost, government guaranteed loan that colleges issue to low-income students to help cover education costs. The federal government caps Perkins loans at $8,000 a year, but each college determines each student's award, so your Perkins loan may be less.
Perkins loans are among the cheapest education loans available. They charge no interest while the student is in school. Approval for a Federal Perkins Loan is determined after review of a FAFSA. The Perkins Loan is only awarded to students with "exceptional need" for financial aid.
Diversity Graduate Fellowship The Diversity Graduate Fellowship Program supports full-time graduate students who will be a part of the diverse student body at SUNY Oswego. The program especially seeks to support those who can demonstrate they have overcome a disadvantage or other impediment to succeed in higher education.
