Graduate students are not eligible for Federal or State grant programs. However, graduate students may borrow up to $20,500 annually under the Federal Direct Stafford Loan programs.
Students may also obtain loans from various private loan programs. Students can compare several Alternative Lenders through the Elm Select website, a neutral lender and product comparison tool.
To apply for aid at Ramapo, students pursuing a graduate degree should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid FAFSA and submit by March 1. No other application forms are required. By complying with this priority deadline, graduate students will be prepared to contact the Office of Financial Aid to discuss loan eligibility and borrowing options well in advance of the tuition payment deadlines.
