Global Partners MBA Financial Aid Resources - Class of 2011
Financial Aid is made available on an academic calendar basis. Global Partners MBA students are
eligible for a maximum of approximately $95,750.00 in loans for the duration of the program. The
GPMBA program runs from Fall Semester 2010 through Fall Semester 2011. The maximum in Federal
Direct Student Loans (FASFA) you can receive is $41,000.00 for all four semesters. The maximum in
either Ford Federal Direct Grad PLUS (Grad PLUS) and/or private loans is approximately $54,750.00.
The US Department of Education has set up the Ford Federal Direct Grad PLUS Loan to provide for
additional funds not covered by other types of aid such as the Federal Direct Student Loans. Since these
loans are federally funded as well, they offer attractive interest rates. In addition to the FASFA form, you
will need to fill out a Grad PLUS form as well (1-page). You can secure private loans, if desired.
The disbursement dates and amounts vary but plan on receiving your funds as follows:
