Once accepted into the program, students must submit a $150 deposit (if international student please refer to international requirements for deposit) and register for classes. Once students are registered, they receive usernames and passwords for email, access to Brightspace, Eastern’s intranet and library resources.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents enrolled in the doctoral program are eligible for Stafford Loans, if they have not exhausted their financial aid opportunities in previous programs. The structure of this program qualifies as full-time enrollment, and all of the federal aid possibilities it entails. For more information, consult Eastern’s Financial Aid Web site.
