Has anyone gotten their Masters degree? How did you pay for it?

Thinking about going back to school for my MSW (Masters in Social Work). I know there is no financial aid for Masters degrees, but wondering how one pays for a Masters program? Can you pay on a credit card or are there loans available?

Any help would be appreciated. I live in NJ.

Thank you!!

  • I want to go back for an MSW too. There is financial aid, mostly in the form of loans though which is the route I'd need to go. My husband just started his MBA and he is paying for it all with loans.

  • My employer paid for 80% of my tuition and fees and 50% of my books. I paid for the rest with loans. You can get grants for certain fields of study, but I don't know if social work is one of them.

  • My employer (actually YOU since I was a Federal Employee at the time) paid for it.
