Loans are often a part of a financial aid award. The following long–term, low–interest loan programs provide students with an opportunity to defer the cost of their education.
Federal Stafford Loan: Unsubsidized low–interest, long–term loans provided by the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. Students must be enrolled half-time (6 hours to receive loan). Repayment begins six months after graduation or when the student ceases to be enrolled at least half–time.
Graduate Plus Loans (PLUS): Credit-based low-interest loans available to graduate students based on educational cost.
Jewish Family Services Loan Fund: A short–term, interest–free loan program available to all students for any related educational expense. The maximum loan amount is $300. Applications are available in the Business Office.
