The Northwestern University Graduate School offers several loans to aid in tuition and expenses.

Financial Aid Loans

Financial aid in the form of loans can be arranged through Northwestern University to cover tuition, other educational expenses and living expenses. We encourage you to begin the loan application process at the time you are admitted to our program to ensure timely distribution of funds.

Visit The Graduate School's website for more information about loans

All applicants who apply for financial aid should first complete a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). Please note that FAFSA generally gives preference to individuals who file their application early in the calendar year.

Please refer to the FAFSA website for information and dates

The Student Financial Services staff determines eligibility as well as processes loan applications. Students may contact them via email at or via telephone at 847-491-8950.
