Graduate students are typically on their own when it comes to paying for their advanced degrees compared to undergraduates. This session highlights the key findings from the study and discusses graduate student perceptions and behaviors to include the resources they used to pay for graduate school, their reasons for pursuing a graduate degree, and the considerations they weighed when making their decisions about attending. Attendees will hear from a panel of school representatives who will share their creative tips for helping graduate students make their education affordable and continue their studies as they prepare for their chosen professions.
