Graduate Programs Financial Aid

At Roberts, we are committed to helping students meet the financial obligation to earn a degree and advance a career. Our Financial Aid Office works to assist all students in their effort to maximize financial aid. Annually, Roberts awards financial assistance to over 75% of degree-completion and graduate students, which includes Federal and NYS aid. Contact your program counselor to see if you qualify for a scholarship.

  Last year Roberts awarded $722,437 in grants and program scholarships to 356 graduate students.

Available Financial Aid

Basic financial aid at the graduate level may be available to eligible students consisting of:

  • Federal Loans (max of $20,500/year)
  • Employee reimbursement (employer tuition assistance)
  • Military benefits (Post 9/11, GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon)
  • Program-specific scholarships (if available).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Your financial aid eligibility may be impacted by your age and independency status. If you are under the age of 25, you may be considered a dependent of your parents for Federal financial aid purposes. Dependent students are required to provide certain parental information on the FAFSA, including income, which will be used to determine your financial aid eligibility and may result in reduced levels of aid. New York State also has separate guidelines for independency.

If you have an unusual family situation or other financial aid questions, contact the Office of Financial Aid:
