Loan Info

Federal loans are a type of financial aid that must be repaid. These loans help cover the cost of your education. Information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility for federal loans. Students also have the option of private/alternative loans for additional funding, however, this should be used as a last resort.

To be eligible for federal loans students must be degree seeking, enrolled at least half-time (six hours), and meet the requirements for Satisfactory Academic Progress.

Borrowing money for college is a serious financial obligation. In addition to the principal borrowed, interest is charged for the use of loan funds. Consider how much you can reasonably afford to repay. The Loan Department encourages students to borrow only what is needed.
