Financial Aid

We recognize that pursuing an MBA is a big investment in your future. To make that future attainable and that investment a strong one, UT Austin awards financial assistance to many Texas MBA students to help cover tuition and living costs.

Loans and Other Options

Education loans are only one of the many possible sources of funds to cover the cost of your MBA education. In today’s economic climate, students need to think carefully before taking on debt and seek to use alternative funding sources as much as possible.

Federal Loans

Federal Loans

Watch our video on Federal Loans. If you're a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you'll likely be eligible for federal student loans. To determine your eligibility, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available October 1 of each year and it is recommended that you have your FAFSA completed at least by June 1.

Once your FAFSA has been successfully processed, you may be offered federal loans.

Private Loans

Private Loans

If you choose to pursue a private loan, we recommend applying no sooner than a few months before you start the program. Most private loans are credit-based and the approval decision may expire. Check with your lender about the length of time your application will remain valid before you apply.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at

For International Students

For International Students

For an international student, there may be loan options. Better loan terms may apply if you have a U.S. citizen or permanent resident co-signer. We are not able to recommend any lenders specifically, but we will work with all banks and lending institutions.

We, as the University of Texas at Austin, cannot be your co-signer.

Executive MBA for Veterans

The McCombs School of Business welcomes veterans, active duty members and their families. If you have questions, please review our benefits information, or contact the Student Veteran Services Office at the University.
