LoansWe recognize that students may need to rely on a variety of resources to assist them in paying for their educational expenses. We hope the information found on the website will allow for a better understanding of the educational loan options.
As you consider the educational loans available from each program, be sure to keep in mind that some loans are more expensive than others. Generally, federal loans should be used first as they provide the best terms, conditions, benefits, have a fixed interest rate, and do not require a credit check. Alternative loans should generally be used once other options have been exhausted as they may have higher interest rates, less favorable terms and conditions and often have more strict qualifying credit criteria.
When reviewing your loan options, pay particular attention to the interest rate, fees, and repayment terms and incentives for each loan before making your decision.
