If you are a current student and are looking to apply or reapply for a scholarship or to request a loan for the 2018-19 year, please follow the instructions below!
There are two types of loans for students: federal Direct Unsubsidized loans and private loans. Both loans have competitive rates, so you are encouraged to look into both options to see what is best for you. The financial aid office is more than happy to walk through both options with you!
Any loan offered to you will be added to your Populi account, where you will need accept, adjust, or decline the loan that is offered to you before the loan can disburse.
If you are looking to take out a federal Direct Unsubsidized loan, you will need to be at least half-time. For online students, that would mean taking 1 course per term. First time loan borrowers will need to complete the 2018-19 FAFSA, Entrance Counseling, and a Master Promissory note in addition to the loan request form.
The application and information about all of the supporting documents (also called components) are available on your Populi page under Financial Aid. These will be updated often to reflect your live checklist for you to monitor the status.
Loans are available at any time during the semester, but the loan will be disbursed during the next available disbursement date.
