Master of Ministry Financial Aid and Payment Options

Stafford Loans:

Anderson University Master of Ministry (M.Min.) candidates are typically eligible only for Stafford loans.  The completed and submitted  The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required in order to determine eligibility for Stafford Loans.  

Graduate students are eligible for up to $8,500 in subsidized loans per academic year. Students who are not eligible to receive subsidized Stafford loans may apply for unsubsidized loans. A student may receive up to $12,000 in unsubsidized loans, which accrue interest from the point of disbursement. Students receiving a non-subsidized loan are responsible for interest-only payments while in school. 

Students have a choice of lenders and Anderson University participates in the Federal Direct Loan Program. 

A student must enroll on at least a half-time basis (3 hours per semester for master's degree candidates) to be eligible for a Stafford loan.

To apply for a Stafford loan:

Complete the FAFSA and have the results sent to Anderson University (003418).

Apply for your loan online as directed in your award letter, or request a paper Master Promissory Note (MPN) from Anderson’s Financial Aid Planning Office. If you currently have an MPN on file, you will not need to complete another one.
