Depending on the alliance partner, the Grant may cover the difference between eligible alliance organization employee tuition assistance and the cost of completion of a Purdue University Global degree. Students who choose to take out supplemental loans are responsible for their repayment in full, including interest and fees, and thus do not receive a no-cost, debt-free education.
