Students who are interested in applying for CEU Financial Aid must complete the Financial Aid section of the CEU online application form, indicating the type of Financial Aid desired.

Application for admission with financial aid to our master's programs is made in two stages. First, an application for admission to the MA program must be completed before the deadline for master's students seeking financial aid. Based on an assessment of academic merit, applicants are then either accepted to a program, placed on the waiting list, or rejected. Second, those applicants who are either accepted or placed on the waiting list can then apply for financial aid. Applications for financial aid will be considered on the basis of a combination of academic merit and financial need. Applications for admission to our master's programs by self-funding students continue to be accepted after the deadline for master's students seeking financial aid.
