A reminder about Loans!

Because of the new laws governing Financial Aid programs, loan processing can take longer than it has in the past.

If you expect to have your loan available for the first Fall payment, you must have your Loan Application filed with us on or before July 1st. (We must, of course, have your Federal Student Aid Report, before we can process the Loan!!) You must also be a fully accepted student.

If you are on the payment plan, you are responsible for making payments on or by the due date, regardless of whether or not your loan has been processed.
