$6,000/year for undergraduates; $10,000/year for graduate & vocational students
Get help with the costs of pursuing a degree or certification. Loans are available for students enrolled at least half-time at an accredited college or university or a licensed vocational school. Student loan checks are written in the student’s name and may be used for tuition, fees, books, or living expenses.
Undergraduates are eligible to borrow $6,000 per academic year, with no more than $20,000 outstanding at one time. Graduate and vocational students may borrow $10,000 per academic year, with no more than $40,000 outstanding at one time.
All students are required to make a small loan payment while they are in school ($125 – $185/mo, depending on the amount borrowed), so the loan balance begins to be paid off while a student is still enrolled.
