Seton Hall recognizes the significant investment of time and money that a graduate business degree from the Stillman School of Business represents to you. Because of this, we provide options to make financing your graduate degree as easy as possible.
Seton Hall provides a myriad of financial aid options for full-time graduate students, from on-campus graduate assistant programs to federally sponsored loans. To find out more about these programs see the Financial Aid section of the Graduate Course Catalog. There is also information on Financial Aid through the Office of Enrollment Services.
Stillman Graduate Assistantships
A limited number of graduate assistantships are available to
full-time students who have already gained admission to a Seton Hall
University Graduate Program. Applications are judged on the basis of
scholastic merit, experience in a related field and financial need. More information and application instructions »
Assistantship Application Deadlines: June 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester.
Academic Management Systems (AMS) TuitionPay Options
AMS offers both one-semester and annual payment plan options (fall and spring terms only). This is the most cost-effective way to finance your education. The plans feature no-interest payments spread over four to ten months. A nominal enrollment fee is charged and payments are made directly to AMS. Annual payment plans begin in July and semester payment plans begin the month before classes begin (i.e., December 2001 for the spring 2002 semester).
For more information on AMS payment plans, call AMS toll-free at (800) 635-0120 or visit their web site at tuitionpay.com.
Corporate Tuition Reimbursement
Many students finance their graduate business degrees using tuition remission programs from their places of employment. Students should consult with their Human Resources Office to determine whether or not they will qualify for this program in advance of registration for courses. Most employers require that course grades be submitted prior to reimbursement, which is made directly to the student.
Seton Hall does not defer billing or payments due for students who receive tuition reimbursement from their employers. Many students rely on payment plans or student loans to cover the first one or two semesters of tuition and fees, depending on the speed of reimbursement at their companies. Once the reimbursement cycle starts, students then can use the monies they receive to pay some or all of their costs at Seton Hall.
It's important to remember that any reimbursement you receive is between you and your employer and does not affect your obligation to pay the costs of education.
Corporate Direct Bill Arrangements
Certain corporations have made arrangements for their employees to register at Seton Hall and pay the costs of tuition and fees directly to the University. These direct bill arrangements require that students consult with their Human Resources Office to determine if they qualify for this program. If approved, the student receives a voucher or letter of credit from the corporation that she/he presents to Enrollment Services. A new voucher is required each semester of enrollment.
Currently, the following corporations have direct bill arrangements with Seton Hall University:
| AT&T |
Carrier Building Systems
Englewood Public Schools
Ford Motor Company
Future Link at Cael
Lipper Analytical Services
Otis Elevator Company
Direct bill arrangements are provided for employers with a large number of employees attending Seton Hall University. Other employers with large numbers of employees maintain policies that reimburse students based on grades earned in courses. For these companies, we ask for the statement to be paid up front to Seton Hall University by the student and then reimbursement can be made once the employer pays Seton Hall or reimburses the student/employee directly.
If your employer does not appear on this list and is interested in creating a direct bill arrangement, please have your company initiate this process by contacting the Enrollment Services Bursar at (973) 313-6097 for further information.
