"I've received all of my financial aid and I still have a balance on my student account. What are my financial aid options?"

Many of today's  students are struggling to pay their student bills. Luckily there are additional loan options available to help. 

The Direct PLUS Loan for a Parent

The Federal Direct PLUS Loan for Parents is a federal loan program for parents who wish to access additional loan resources beyond what a dependent student is eligible to receive. The parent borrower is responsible for repayment of this loan. More information about the PLUS Loan can be located under Types of Financial Aid/Federal Direct Plus Loan.

Private Alternative Educational Loans

Private Alternative Loans are educational loans from a bank that help students who may be in need of further financial assistance for educational costs. Because these loans are from private institutions, they often have their own eligibility requirements. 500 Internal Server Error-澳彩网
