Alternative Loans

If your federal financial aid does not cover your total budget (or cost of attendance) you may be able to borrow additional funds through alternative loans. This can be helpful to students who have used their full loan eligibility during the Fall and Spring and need funds for Summer term, for those who need additional funds during the school year, or, in some instances, for students who have a prior balance on their student accounts.

Alternative loans are credit based. Students who are borrowing alternative loans may need a co-signer in order to qualify for the loans. You may apply for these loans on-line, and once approved, your lender will contact us to certify the loans for you.

Students are encouraged to use the Fast Choice website for comparative information and for help with understanding your alternative loan options and responsibilities.
