Student Loans

Student loans are a form of financial aid. It is money that a student (or sometimes parents) borrow to assist with paying for college expenses. Student loans must be repaid with interest by the borrower (this could be the student or the parent). Federal loans are administered by the Financial Aid Office. Private loans are also managed by the Financial Aid Office (please contact us for more information)
