Financial Aid for Graduate Students
Committed to the philosophy that all students should receive whatever support is available to have access to quality graduate studies, UW Oshkosh offers affordable graduate programs and information about numerous forms of financial aid. Through the Office of Graduate Studies, the Financial Aid Office and individual departments, students can receive financial assistance in the forms of loans, grants, scholarships and graduate assistant employment.
The majority of federal financial assistance available to graduate students is offered as loans. The Financial Aid Office can help students secure this type of aid. In addition to federal and state loans, the Financial Aid office provides information about grants, scholarships and work-study.
Graduate students can find more details about financial information and assistance through these links:

Note: Financial aid is not generally available for graduate students in certificate programs. Graduate special (non-degree) students cannot receive financial aid.
