Special PLUS loan counseling:

Beginning on March 29, 2015, special loan counseling is required for any PLUS Loan applicant (parent), who has an adverse credit history but who qualifies for a PLUS Loan either by getting a loan endorser or being reconsidered due to extenuating circumstances. While the counseling is mandatory only for these borrowers, the Department offers voluntary counseling for all PLUS borrowers. Note that this special counseling is separate from the entrance counseling that all graduate and professional student PLUS Loan borrowers must complete.

Private/Alternative Loans

Private loans (also known as alternative student loans) can help you pay for college when federal assistance is not enough. We encourage all students to first look into federal loan programs. Eligibility for private/alternative loans depends on the student’s credit score. These loans are offered by private lenders and the amount you may borrow varies and depends on the lender of your choosing. The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships will process any private/alternative loan of your choice. Please notify our office if you are applying for a private/alternative loan.  The Private Loan Self-Certification Form is available under Documents and Forms, or you may obtain the document from one of our Financial Aid Counselors upon request.
