Award Status

Applying for Student Loans

Once you have been awarded and you are interested in applying for a student loan, call the Financial Aid Office at Extension 4450 and sign-up for an Entrance Counseling Session. These one hour sessions are mandatory for student loans. You will receive all necessary loan request forms at this session and have all your questions answered.
