Federal Loans

Federal loans, which have lower interest rates and more flexibile repayment options than private student loans, are an investment in your future and can be a great way to pay for school.

For more detailed information about federal loan options, visit our Federal Loans page.

Private Loans

Private Educational Loans are offered by private lenders to assist student borrowers with educational and living expenses. Private Educational Loans are not guaranteed by the Federal government. The borrower (either student or parent) may borrow such a loan through various participants such as banks, credit unions, or savings and loan associations.

Private Educational Loans will be included in your financial aid award and cannot exceed your Cost of Attendance. 

For more information about private loans, visit our Private Loans page.
