Federal Aid/ Pell Grant

Priority deadline April 1

The Pell grant is the foundation of federal student aid. Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students- those who have not yet earned a Bachelor’s Degree. Online students are eligible for the same types of financial aid assistance available to on campus students.  Eligibility is determined through the FAFSA application which is submitted annually. If eligible, awards range from $596 to $5,920. The award amount is calculated on the student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the cost of attendance at the institution, semesters enrolled, and the number of hours enrolled. Students must also be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards.

Private Loans

A private loan is a non-federally funded student loan borrowed from a lender. These loans require credit approval and often a co-signer. Private loans typically have higher interest rates, less repayment options, and can have additional fees. So it is important to carefully consider your options when deciding a private loan is right for you.

Private loans may be a good choice for you if:

  • You have no remaining federal loan eligibility due to maximizing your undergraduate borrowing limits.
  • You are ineligible to receive federal student aid due to financial aid suspension or you are in default with federal student loans.

If you decide a private loan is a good option please carefully read all of the disclosure information provided by the lender. You must be enrolled in at least six credit hours in an eligible degree or certificate program to be awarded a private loan. Shop around and do your research before selecting the right private lender for you.
