Teaching & Research Assistantships
Leeds School of Business does not offer teaching or research assistantships for first-year MBA students. Second-year students who have established high levels of achievement in their core courses may be chosen by faculty for paid teaching assistantships or research positions.
Eligible MBA students may apply for federal financial aid in the form of student loans. To apply, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The priority deadline for financial aid consideration at the University of Colorado at Boulder is March 1. For more information contact the Office of Financial Aid at 303-492-5091, or by email at email@example.com.
Federal Direct Loans are fixed-rate student loans for graduate students who are attending a college or university at least part-time. Eligible graduate students may borrow Direct Unsubsidized Loans that have a loan limit of $20,500 per year and a (current) fixed interest rate of 6.08% after 7-1-2019.
Graduate Plus Loans
Graduate PLUS student loans are also unsubsidized and require a credit check. The yearly limit on a Graduate PLUS Loan is equal to your cost of attendance minus any other financial aid you receive. Graduate PLUS loans have a current fixed interest rate of 7.08% after 7-1-2019.
For students who are not eligible for federal loans (e.g., international students), or for students who need additional assistance beyond the federal loan programs, there are a variety of private lenders who offer loan options for graduate studies.
