Student Loans

Student loans are one of four types of financial aid.  Student loans are borrowed money that must be repaid, with interest.  When used properly, student loans can be a good resource to assist with college costs.  Before considering a student loan, you should exhaust all other financial aid types, such as grants, scholarships and work-study.  To determine eligibility for these programs you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The FAFSA can be completed online at www.fafsa.gov at no cost to the applicant.  If you choose to borrow, we recommend exhausting federal loan eligibility prior to alternative loans.
