Financing Your Education

Financing your graduate degree doesn’t have to be daunting. At DMU, we’re continually developing and updating institutional and federal aid packages, and assisting students like you in locating other sources of state and private aid.

Planning early and exploring all your options are keys to making your career aspirations a reality. And remember, investing in a higher degree, especially in the field of psychology, provides a guaranteed return on your investment.

The priority deadline to apply for institutional aid (assistantships) is March 1st.  If funding is still available, late applicants will be considered.

“The education at IPS is an investment for a long and fulfilling future as a Catholic psychotherapist. What you sacrifice in the short term, you more than make up for in solid clinical training, thorough instruction in a Catholic anthropology, and substantive character development. We’re in it for the long haul.” Matt McCall, M.S., Psy. D. Student, Ohio
