贷款 require repayment.

Federal Direct Student 贷款

All eligible students can borrow through the U.S. Department of Education's Direct Loan Program, designed specifically for college students. This low-interest loan program allows you to defer payments while you are enrolled in a degree/certificate program for at least six credit hours, with repayment beginning six months after you graduate or drop below half-time enrollment status. Students must remain in good academic standing with a minimum GPA of 3.0, and successfully complete 75% of their courses each academic year.

Note: If you accept one of these loans, you must complete a Federal Direct Loan Promissory Note and complete a debt management session in addition to filing a FAFSA.

Private Education 贷款

St. 爱德华的 also maintains information on a number of alternative loan programs. Repayment of most of these loans can be deferred while you are enrolled at least part time. Plus, you don’t need to complete a need-analysis form, like the FAFSA. You just need to pass a standard credit check or have a co-signer on your loan.

If you are a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, you may be eligible to use your VA Educational Benefits at St. 爱德华的. (Hazlewood benefits cannot be used because of our private university status.)我们 退伍军人事务 office can help determine your eligibility and answer any questions you might have and can be reached at 512-492-3193 or
