Funding

Making the decision to continue your education and advance your career is a significant one, and one that involves both time and financial investment.  Millsaps is committed to helping you navigate through the process of applying for financial aid, both federal and state, and loans, grants, and scholarships. 

 

In addition to the scholarships and graduate assistantship opportunities, below are other funding opportunities available to you.

MILLSAPS PAYMENT PLANS
 

We accept many payment methods and offer several payment options to fit your needs.  All students must have their balance paid in full or enrolled in a payment plan prior to the due date for each term.

 

EMPLOYER ASSISTANCE

LOANS


Federal Direct Loans
 

Graduate students, enrolled for six or more semester hours during a term, are eligible to apply for Federal Direct Loans. These loans require submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have both annual and lifetime aggregate limits. 
 

Annual Maximum Amount of Unsubsidized Loans:  $20,500


Lifetime Aggregate Loan Limits:  Graduate/Professional Students can borrow a maximum total of $138,500 (of which no more than $65,500 can be subsidized loans).  These graduate loan limits include all loans borrowed as an undergraduate.

Direct PLUS Loan


The U.S. Department of Education makes Direct PLUS Loans to eligible graduate or professional students through schools participating in the Direct Loan Program. A Direct PLUS Loan is commonly referred to as a grad PLUS loan when made to a graduate or professional student.
