Financial Aid Opportunities

At Yeshiva University, we understand that an MSW can greatly enhance your opportunities to achieve specific professional goals and fully realize your desire to serve as a social work professional. We also understand that financial aid can be critical in making program participation possible and are pleased to assist students in applying for available tuition support.

As part of the William D. Ford Direct Loan Program, you may be eligible for a Graduate PLUS loan, which is borrowed directly from the federal government at a fixed interest rate. To verify your eligibility, you will need to complete the Graduate PLUS Loan Application and authorize a credit check, to be run by the U.S. Department of Education.

The U.S. Department of Education also offers unsubsidized loans for eligible students to help cover the costs of higher education at a four-year university or college, community college, or a trade, career or technical school. Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans are available for eligible students at participating schools. Learn more about these loans here.

If you are interested in requesting financial aid for your MSW, we ask that you file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using the Yeshiva University Federal School code of 002903 and campus code of 00.

*Degree Completion Scholarship offer available only to qualified new (first-time) enrollees for the Online Master of Social Work programs, not current or returning students to the program. Scholarship funds not payable directly to recipient. For traditional online MSW, half of the scholarship funds will be credited toward the tuition after completing 30 credits and then remaining amount will be credited toward tuition in the student's final academic term of the program. Students enrolled in advanced standing will receive full amount of funds toward tuition in the student's final academic term of the program. If student receives other forms of financial assistance, the student's financial assistance may require modification to account for the scholarship by preventing any 'over-award,' such that the total financial assistance received does not exceed the cost of attendance, as defined and determined by the Office of Financial Aid of Yeshiva University. Recipients of the scholarship must remain continuously enrolled in the program through completion. Exceptions may be granted for students who obtain a university-approved leave of absence. Students receiving the scholarship must maintain satisfactory academic progress at all times for scholarship to remain in effect.
