Student Loan Information

What is a student loan? 

A loan is a type of financial aid that requires repayment. Student loans may be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students. Loans can be need-based or non-need-based, so financial need may not be required for some loan programs. Information included on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility for Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized), the Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS), and the Federal Graduate PLUS Loan.  Students may also consider other Private/Alternative Loans for additional funding.
