Loans & Financing Options

When you consider all the ways an education at a top university can enrich your life, it’s one of the best long-term investments you can make in your future. Borrowing is one way to make that investment possible. Of course, only you and your family can decide how much is a reasonable amount to borrow. But with careful planning, a loan can be a smart decision.

Most educational loans offer more favorable terms than other consumer loans, such as car loans or credit cards. However, since all loans must be repaid, we encourage you to borrow no more than necessary, explore other options for financial aid, and earn as much as possible through employment.

Certain borrower information will be submitted to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) and will be accessible by authorized agencies, lenders, and institutions for students and parents borrowing federal loans.  NSLDS is the U.S. Department of Education’s central database for student aid. NSLDS receives data from schools, guaranty agencies, the Direct Loan program, and other Department of ED programs. NSLDS Student Access provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants so that recipients of Title IV Aid can access and inquire about their Title IV loans and/or grant data.
