Guide to financial aid


Before applying for a private student loan, make sure that you have thoroughly exhausted all sources of free* and low-cost financial aid. While the process may seem daunting, planning carefully and researching all of your options can save you thousands!




* "Free" refers to financial aid that normally does not require repayment (if all eligibility requirements are met) such as scholarships, grants and tuition discounting. Please contact your financial aid office for additional details.
