Merit Scholarships

Merit scholarships are awarded based upon your admissions application and are given on a first-come, first-served basis across all programs. Please check the admissions deadline for your program of study to ensure timely submission of your application. 

Need-based Aid

All new students must submit a PTS Financial Aid Application to be evaluated for institutional grants and work support. Applications will only be considered for the specified length of the degree program. There are separate applications for those enrolled in the master's programs and the doctoral program. All complete applications are processed on a “first come, first served” basis until funds are exhausted.

Returning students will complete a financial aid recertification form each year to maintain their need-based financial aid package.    

** PTS reserves the right to request additional tax information from both incoming and returning students in order to maintain an equitable and fair awarding process for all students.
