Prohibited activities include: receiving compensation to serve on any lender board of directors or advisory boards; accepting gifts including trips, meals, and entertainment; allowing lenders to staff our institution's financial aid office; allowing lenders to place our institution's name or logo on any of their products; and owning of lenders' stock (for college officials who make financial decisions for our institution).

Some things to consider before selecting a private loan:

  • Accept all grant, scholarship and federal funding before applying for a private loan.
  • Private loans usually take anywhere between 2-6 weeks to process so begin the process as early as possible.
  • Most loans require a credit-worthy cosigner if the main applicant does not meet all the credit criteria.
  • Only borrow what you will need for the school year
  • Any other questions please contact the Financial Aid office at (515) 263-2800.
