Private Loan Options for US Citizens / Permanent Residents

US Citizens and Permanent Residents enrolled in an online MBA program are eligible to apply for private education loans for tuition and on-campus residency costs if needed. International students are not eligible to apply for this loan.

At this time, Sallie Mae is the only lender available for students in this program. Private Education Loans are credit based, and interest rates vary (currently 3.87%-11.85%, depending upon specific lender criteria, credit worthiness, and whether or not the borrower chooses a fixed or variable interest rate). A cosigner may be required to secure a private education loan

If you are not borrowing the maximum amount, please notify your Financial Aid Counselor of the amount you would like disbursed for each term within the budget below, or your loan disbursements will be split equally per term. Please be advised that these are private loans and interest rates as well as overall approval will be based on your credit. You should apply online and make sure to complete and submit the Self-Certification form, as well as all required disclosure forms to the lender in a timely manner, in order to be approved for school certification.

Financial aid applicants who have any doubt about their credit rating should request a copy of their credit report and reconcile any problems prior to matriculation. If a student cannot obtain a loan because of a negative credit rating, school funds cannot be awarded to replace the loan.
