Financing Your Fordham Education

Female Student Holding Stack of NewspapersYour education is an investment in your future and one of the most important decisions you will make.

At Fordham, we recommend you approach paying for your education with a comprehensive and realistic financing plan that you can sustain.  

To help with your planning, Fordham makes available a variety of options including payment plans and loan programs to supplement any institutional or outside aid you may receive.

We recommend that you: 
•    Pay as much as possible up front;  
•    Calculate how much you can pay on a monthly basis; 
•    Limit borrowing, especially in the early years, by paying as much as you can on the monthly payment plan; 
•    Decide if this is a plan you can maintain over the student's career.

Determining the combination of financing options that serves you best is not an easy task.  You may use our Financing Fordham Worksheet to design a plan that is right for you. 

The guides below provide advice and instructions that can help you and your family understand the financial aid process as well as the financing options available.
