Students in our program may be eligible for a Federal Stafford Loan as a fifth year senior (maximum amount of $12,500) for one academic year; fall, spring and summer. You must complete a FAFSA form and will need to complete a non-degree form and have it signed by the Program Advisor.
If you have maxed out your student loans while in undergrad or graduate school, you may not be eligible. Keep in mind that there are alternative loans that you may be eligible for. Please contact Mr. Cedric Trigg, Financial Aid Advisor, Sr.at 502-852-5511 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. You may also visit the Financial Aid website.
U of L employees receive tuition remission for approximately 6-8 hours of course work each semester. Visit our human resources department to see what job opportunities are available.
If you must pay out of pocket, you can make payment arrangements with the Bursar's office. This will allow you some time to pay off your tuition as you take classes for that semester.
UPS Tuition Incentive
Through the Metropolitan College/UPS partnership, students may receive tuition remission at the Kentucky-resident undergraduate rate at the University of Louisville (UofL) contingent upon meeting the Metropolitan College/UPS program requirements (working through the work commitment date and earning a grade of “C” or better in coursework). The benefit is limited to the regular per credit hour undergraduate Kentucky resident tuition rate. The student is responsible for additional fees assessed by the institution including but not limited to lab fees, distance learning charges beyond regular undergraduate tuition, parking fees, meal plans, housing, student health fees, etc. Students must obtain employment at UPS, working third shift as package handlers in order to utilize the Metropolitan College program. Metropolitan College is a tuition deferment program and doesn’t pay a student’s tuition until 6 to 8 weeks after the agreement period ends.
UPS also offers the Earn and Learn Program which will allow students to work other shifts other than third shift. Earn and Learn offers assistance up to $1500 per semester or $3000 per year for tuition, books and fees. Earn and Learn can be used as a tuition deferment or reimbursement program and it typically depends on the timeliness of paperwork being returned by the student.
