Graduate Sources

Graduate students who wish to apply for financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the priority filing deadline of March 1. In addition, graduate students must be accepted to the college and be participating in a matriculated program to qualify.  For additional information and assistance you may contact Nancy Martorano 652-4750 who manages all financial aid aspects for graduate students including financial aid application processing and student financial aid advising.


Students may borrow up to $20,500 each academic year of an unsubsidized Stafford Loan.

Students may be eligible for an unsubsidized loan by completing the FAFSA. If the student is enrolled at least 5 credits at Stockton to obtain a degree, he or she may be eligible. The unsubsidized loan is not based on financial need. When added to other financial aid resources, the loan amount may not exceed the cost of education for the academic year. Students are charged interest from the time the loan is disbursed. 

College Work Study provides jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student's course of study. 

Parents and Graduate students are eligible to borrow under the PLUS Loan program up to their cost of attendance minus other financial assistance. Applicants for these loans are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may apply for the Direct graduate PLUS loan and obtain more information at this web site

Students may receive up to $8,000 for graduate study. If you fail to complete the four-year teaching obligation the grant will convert to an unsubsidized loan and must be repaid with interest.
Applicants must be accepted into the Master of Arts in Education (MAED) program and complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Each year the applicant must complete TEACH Grant Counseling and a TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
