Responsibly and informedly borrowing student loans can be an effective way to finance your education. For instance, federally subsidized loans can be an especially helpful option since they do not accrue interest while you are enrolled in college full-time.

In addition to university scholarships and government aid, we encourage all incoming and current students to work with Student Financial Services to identify and apply for the numerous private scholarships available to college students.
