Financial Aid

Students enrolled in Pace Online programs may be eligible for Federal Direct Stafford Unsubsidized Loans and private education loans to cover tuition and other education-related costs.

For more information about funding your Dyson education, contact Pace’s Financial Aid Office.

You can also find student loan information on the US Department of Education’s Financial Student Aid website. For more information on how to file your FAFSA, visit the FAFSA website. The FAFSA school code for Pace University is 002791.

Leave of Absence Impact on Financial Aid

Students on a leave of absence pursuant to the Leave of Absence Policy are considered to be withdrawn from the University for purposes of financial aid. Consequently, loan repayment obligations may be triggered. Students should speak to a representative of the Financial Aid Office for more detailed information about the status of their financial aid during a leave of absence prior to submitting a Leave of Absence Application.

Veteran Benefits

Eligible veteran students can receive tuition benefits offered by the GI Bill®. For general information about Veterans’ benefits, please contact Peter Riley at priley@pace.edu or (212) 346-1115.

After financial aid, this program can provide full coverage for out-of-pocket tuition and fees.
