Federal Financial Aid

This page contains information about financial aid eligibility at GSE.

Information on the federal aid, state aid and other types of aid can be found on the University’s Financial Aid website.


To be eligible for federal financial aid at the Fordham Graduate School of Education, students must:

  • maintain a grade point average of
    • 3.00 for ADV, MS, MSE, MST degrees
    • 3.50 for EdD, PhD degrees
  • attempt and complete no fewer than 6 credit hours per term
  • complete the course of study
    • for ADV, MS, MSE, MST degrees within 5 years
    • EdD, PhD degree within 8 years

Students who fail to maintain these GPAs (i.e. maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP)) at the end of each academic year will lose federal financial aid eligibility.

If the student resumes satisfactory academic progress, the student may regain federal financial aid eligibility as long as she/he maintains SAP. Learn more about the Federal Loan Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.
