Student Loan Programs
Student loan programs to finance your college education.
After filing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid you may be presented with options for student loans from the government or you may consider taking out an alternative loan from a private lender. We encourage you to think carefully about your educational investment as well as your long-term financial commitments when borrowing.
All eligibility criteria including submission of required documents and acceptance into an eligible program of study must be met by the required deadlines. Please consult with the Office of Student Financial Services about aid eligibility for non-degree certificate programs, as aid eligibility may differ from our degree offerings.
New for 2020/2021 Academic Year
Annual Student Loan Acknowledgement
The US Department of Education is now offering Federal Direct student borrowers an Annual Student Loan Acknowledgement.
If this is your first time accepting a Federal Direct student loan, you are acknowledging that you understand your responsibility to repay your loan.
If you have existing Federal Direct student loans, you are acknowledging that you understand how much you owe and how much more you can borrow.
Who should complete this?
Borrowers accepting a Federal Direct subsidized/unsubsidized loan/s, a Federal Direct PLUS loan for graduate/professional students, or a Federal Direct PLUS loan for parents.
The Annual Student Loan Acknowledgement must be completed before a borrower can receive the first disbursement of the first loan the borrower receives for a particular award year, starting in the 2021–2022 Academic Year.
