Academic Catalog 2020-2021

Financial Aid

Pratt offers various kinds of assistance, ranging from academic merit-based scholarships to assistantships and loans.

Entering Graduate Students

Graduate students who are interested in applying for federal aid must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the Department of Education electronically by February 1.

File electronically using the FAFSA or renewal application at www.fafsa.ed.gov or on Pratt’s website. Do not submit more than one application!

The FAFSA should be submitted no later than February 1 if the student wishes to receive timely notification of financial aid. Other documents, such as federal tax transcripts, may be requested and must be submitted by May 15.

If financial need has been established and adequate funding is available, students are considered for federal loan programs. Graduate students are not eligible for Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOGs), or Subsidized Stafford Loans.

Currently Enrolled Graduate Students

Students who are interested in applying for federal aid must submit the FAFSA to the Department of Education. The FAFSA should be filed no later than February 1 if the student wishes to be advised of aid in a timely fashion. Documents such as IRS tax transcripts may be requested. If requested, they must be submitted by May 15.

Student Financial Services, upon receipt of student grades, evaluates the eligibility of each applicant and sends email notifications of the awards to continuing students in early summer if the student has applied by February 1.
