Student Loans

A student loan is an obligation that must be repaid after you complete your degree or cease to be enrolled full-time.

The FAFSA form (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) determines your eligibility for federal/state loan resources.  This form is completed online FAFSA after January 1 of each year.  Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents to fill out this form.  The previous year’s federal tax forms should have been completed before you complete the FAFSA form.  It is in your best interest to complete the FAFSA form as soon after January 1 as possible - and certainly before March 1.
