Financial Aid

EMRP Online Certificate Program

As a graduate certificate program, the EMRP online certificate program does not result in a degree; therefore, financial aid is not offered for this program. However, certificate students may wish to look into alternative loans, also known as private loans. These are educational loans offered through a bank or other financial lender. Visit the UIC Office of Student Financial Aid Alternative Loan Web page for more information.
