Federal Financial Aid

The Federal Stafford Loan Program offers a variety of student loans for both graduate and undergraduate students. Loans are either subsidized (government pays loan interest) or unsubsidized (borrower is responsible for loan interest). Interest rates for student loans are low compared to other types of consumer loans, and repayment can be deferred until after graduation. Loan amounts vary:

*Students in programs are eligible for up to $18,500 in federal Stafford Loans. Eligibility and award amounts are reviewed annually by the financial aid office.

Federal Pell Grants are based on financial need and are awarded to eligible learners in an undergraduate program. The maximum Pell Grant allowed for 2004-2005 is $4,050. Because the Pell Grant is considered to be "gift aid," it does not have to be repaid. Pell Grant eligibility is based upon actual enrollment.

Note: You must be enrolled at least half time to qualify for federal financial aid. Call an enrollment services representative at 1-888-227-2736 to explore your financial aid opportunities and to map out your program with our unique roadmap system.

Non-federal Student Loans

For learners seeking funding outside the federal Stafford Loan programs, private loans are available through numerous preferred lenders and financial institutions. Interest rates for student loans are low compared to other types of consumer loans, and repayment is deferred until after graduation. Call 1-888-227-2736 to speak with an enrollment services representative about which loan program may be best suited to your needs.
