Financial Aid

The EMCP program itself does not offer financial aid.

As a graduate certificate program, the Public Health GIS 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.

Veterans Benefits

You may be able to apply Veterans Benefits to this program. The first step would be to verify your eligibility for Veterans Benefits.
