Loans and Grants

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.
