Cost of Attendance

An MBA student's budget, or "cost of attendance", refers to the total amount of educational costs that he or she can expect to incur in a typical year as a Katz student. Educational costs include:

  • Program tuition
  • Fees
  • Books
  • Living expenses

The cost of attendance represents the maximum amount that a student can receive in financial aid, including scholarships, educational loans, or any other grant from a private or government body.  Once your student loan amount has reached the amount of your cost of attendance, you are not eligible for additional educational loans. If you need additional funds, you will need to take out a private loan.

Resources and Information

Merit-Based Scholarships for Full-Time Students

Tuition scholarships provide the primary source of financial assistance for incoming full-time Katz students. These merit-based scholarships are awarded in various dollar amounts and are directly applied to tuition charges.

Katz School scholarships are available to full-time U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and international students. You will receive notification of these awards in your official admission decision letter.

Applicants desiring to be considered for scholarship awards must apply no later than February 1 for the Full-time One-Year, Two-Year and Dual-Degree programs.

Educational Loans for Full-Time and Professional MBA Students

Once students have gained admission to their MBA program of choice, they can inquire about educational loans through the MBA Admissions Office or by contacting the University of Pittsburgh's Office of Admissions and Financial Aid. Students will also receive a link to the Katz Admitted Student Intranet, which details the different types of educational loans available for MBA students. Two general types of educational loans exist:

Graduate Stafford Loans

All MBA students who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents may qualify for a maximum of $20,500 per academic year under the federal Stafford Loan Program. A Graduate Plus loan is available to cover additional expenses incurred during graduate school.

Private Educational Loans

Private educational loans are available through various commercial banks and private lending institutions for educational expenses not covered by Graduate Stafford Loans or scholarship funds. All students, domestic and international, are eligible to apply for private educational loans. International students typically need a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident co-sign the loan.
