General Information

In accordance with Pennsylvania Act 121 (2018), the IIRP will annually provide students with a summary of their total estimated student loan liability as of March 1st. The summary will include information about the total amount of Non-Federal Student Loans (Interest-Free Tuition Payment Plan) borrowed at the IIRP. However, this estimate does not reflect any Federal or Non-Federal Student Loan debt a student may have incurred at other institutions previously attended. It is important to also note that the student loan summary provided does not include information on any student loan funds borrowed in the upcoming academic year. 

Interest-Free Payment Plan

We offer financial aid to all students who are admitted to either the Master of Science degree or Graduate Certificate program in the form of an interest-free line of credit with low monthly payments and zero interest. This plan extends 39 months for Graduate Certificate students, 97 months for Master’s Degree students, and 118 months for students pursuing the Thesis Option. While many graduate schools administer loan programs, we have simplified the process by offering the same affordable plan to all students. There is no prepayment penalty. There is a one-time payment plan setup charge of $75. 

Impact Scholarships

Impact Scholarships provide full tuition and other support for the next generation of changemakers across  the  globe. Impact Scholarships are awarded to students admitted to the IIRP Master of Science program who are committed to making a lasting positive impact in their local community.
