Financial Aid for Current Students

The decision to pursue graduate study represents a significant academic and financial commitment. These pages are prepared to assist students in the financial planning essential for a successful graduate career.

The Statement of Financial Resources for Current Students

The Statement of Financial Resources for the next academic year is mailed to all registered and eligible students in late April or early May. The Statement of Financial Resources should be returned to the Financial Aid Office within two weeks of receipt of the letter. Any student receiving GSAS support must complete this form and return it to the Admissions and Financial Aid Office. Statements are not sent to those students who are admitted with the understanding that they would receive no financial support or to those students who have already utilized their guarantee of support.
