Graduate Financial Aid

At Webster, we understand that funding your graduate degree is an important decision, one that we don't take lightly. Making an investment in yourself is the key to success and we are here to help.

We are ranked first among all public and non-profit private universities in the country for conferring graduate degrees to the most diverse degree-seeking student population in the United States, and first for having the most diverse graduate student population in the state of Missouri, according to the annual Diverse Issues in Higher Education “Top 100 Degree Producers” survey.

How to Apply for Graduate Student Financial Aid

Submitting your Free Application for Federal Student Aid is a simple process:

  1. After admission to Webster University, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available on the U.S. Department of Education's Web site. Be sure to follow directions and use your pin number to sign electronically.

           *Webster University Title IV School Code - 002521

  1. Watch your email for your next steps after submitting your FAFSA Form.
  2. Complete all next steps that the U.S. Department of Education and Webster’s Financial Aid Office requests.
  3. Make sure to submit the Webster University Graduate Student Financial Aid Application. Select the appropriate form which best details your start term and year.
  1. Make sure that you complete your Entrance Loan Counseling.  Completing entrance counseling is a requirement for the Federal Direct loan program. It is a good idea to complete this requirement even if you are not interested in borrowing Direct loan funds right away.
  2. A PLUS Loan maybe a good alternative for you. Complete the application for the Graduate PLUS Loan for the appropriate year.
