To serve you better we ask that you apply for a student loan by the dates listed below:
- Fall Term - December 1
- Spring Term - May 1
- Summer Term - July 1
Students who previously received a federal student loan from a private lender under the FFEL Program will need to complete a new promissory note to receive loans under the Direct Loan Program.
How Do I Get a Student Loan?
- You must complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application.
If you have not already done so, you can apply online at https://fafsa.ed.gov
- NOTE: Student and parent (if student is dependent) need a PIN (Personal Identification Number) from the Department of Education to sign their FAFSA application electronically. During the FAFSA application you may request a PIN or retrieve a PIN you may have forgotten or go to https://pin.ed.gov.
