Financial Aid

The financing of professional and graduate education in the United States is viewed primarily as the responsibility of the student. There are very few federal or state grant and scholarship programs designed for graduate students. Bastyr University is very conscious of the cost of financing an education. The primary job of the financial aid team is to work with students to help them plan for, and obtain, the resources needed to make a Bastyr education a reality.
