when to apply for graduate??

Postby vera1023 » Sun Apr 14, 2013 11:02 pm

I'm a Sophomore now in undergrad, and because of one school that was very expensive, i only have 18,000 left for my undergrad. When can i apply for graduate loan money, if I'm for sure going to be working towards my masters and phd? Do I have to wait until I've actually been awarded my bachelors and graduated from undergrad, or is there some way to just go straight into the graduate loan amount? Thanks!!

You can only receive graduate loan amounts once you are officially enrolled in a graduate program.

Yes, enroll into a graduate program and check whether loan is available there or not. Rules and regulations in every institute are different. Find out which one is suitable for you and apply.
