Financial Aid Information

Due to the structure of the program, MBA students have specific considerations regarding financial aid.

Financial Aid Requirements:

  • You must be degree-seeking (fully accepted into the MBA program, 157MBA plan) and enrolled at least half-time (5 credit hours) to receive financial aid. 

  • You must be registered for both first and second-half semester classes prior to the start of the semester.

  • Complete a FAFSA (available starting October 1st each year). This application covers the fall, spring, and summer semesters (in that order).

  • Additional information may be required after completing your FAFSA. Check your email and your Student Center To Do List regularly for any items that may need to be completed.

  • After your financial aid offer has been created, you will be able to view your financial aid on MyUNIverse and accept any loans you would like to borrow.

  • If you are borrowing federal loans, make sure you have completed Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN).

How much money can I borrow?
As a graduate student, you may borrow up to the Cost of Attendance (as determined by UNI) minus any other financial aid. The annual borrowing limit for the Direct Unsubsidized Loan is $20,500.

When do I receive financial aid?
Financial aid is scheduled to disburse 10 days prior to the start of each semester.
