The priority deadline for financial aid consideration at the University of Colorado at Boulder is April 1. For more information contact the Office of Financial Aid at 303.492.5091, by email at

Direct Loans
Federal Direct Loans are fixed-rate student loans for graduate students attending a college or university at least half time. Eligible graduate students may borrow Direct Unsubsidized Loans which have a loan limit of $20,500 per year and a current fixed interest rate of 6% after 7/1/17.

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% after 7/1/17.

Private Loans
For students who are not eligible for federal loans (international students), or who need additional assistance beyond the federal loan programs, there are a variety of private lenders who offer loan options for graduate study.
