It's normal for students earning a graduate degree to think it's not financially possible. However, working with our Financial Aid Office, graduate students quickly learn that it IS possible. This degree is an investment in YOU and your future.

Many SAU graduate students pay for graduate school by combining employer support (check with your employer to see if they offer a discount, payment deferral or tuition reimbursement) and financial aid with personal funds. We'll do everything we can to walk you through the options which include financial aid, scholarships, and assistantships.

If you're a veteran, we have an admissions specialist – Natalie Woodhurst – who is an expert in military benefits. Natalie will help you determine available dollars and how to invest this benefit in a St. Ambrose education.
