Financial Aid for Adults Going Back to School
Several misconceptions circulate around financial aid for adults going back to school. One, many hear that adult students aren’t eligible for scholarships, grants, and loans. Others believe that the best financial aid packages go directly to students who recently finished high school. As a result, adults who are considering finishing their bachelor’s degree, starting a master’s, or acquiring additional career-enhancing credentials get deterred by all the rumors out there and don’t apply, believing the financial costs to be too great.
Mount Vernon Nazarene University factors the needs of working adults into our Graduate & Professional Studies (GPS) programs. Most degree programs can be completed online in some form, and our affordable tuition is structured on a per-credit, course-by-course basis, allowing adults to continue working while studying on their own timeline. Financial aid fits into this framework, too. Adults interested in online or on-campus courses have a wealth of financing resources available.
To take advantage of all possible financial aid options, adult students are advised to first complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form with their application and then reach out to an MVNU Financial Aid advisor for further guidance through the process.
