Loan Programs

> Financial Aid
Taking out a loan, or borrowing money, is one way to make your college education affordable.

However, unlike grants and scholarships, a loan is money that must be repaid with interest. If you apply for financial aid, you may be offered loans as part of your school’s financial aid offer.

Student loans can come from the federal government or from a private lender such as a bank, credit union, or state agency. Federal Student Loans are from thee U.S. Department of Education and usually offer borrowers lower interest rates and have more flexible repayment options. To apply for a Direct Loan, visit studentloans.gov.

 

Direct Subsidized

These loans are for undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. Interest charges and payments begin six months after the students last day of attendance or when the student has reached 150% of the Direct Subsidized loan limit.

Direct Unsubsidized

These loans are for undergraduate students. Students are not required to demonstrate financial need to be eligible for these loans. Interest charges begin thirty days after loan funding and payments are not required while still attending college, up to six academic years.

Direct Plus

These loans are for parents of dependent undergraduate students. The parent is legally responsible for repayment of the loan. These loans charge interest and are subject to credit check.
