Friends University encourages students to take advantage of all sources of institutional, state and federal aid before considering private loans. Private loans do not require students to submit a FAFSA, are based on credit-worthiness, have variable interest rates, are repaid separately from federal loans, and may not be deferred until the student is no longer enrolled at least part-time.
Friends University does not endorse one lender or loan over another, we encourage students to do their research and select the loan that best fits their individual needs. Below is a link to a historical list of all private lenders who continue to offer alternative loans for education and have provided funds to Friends University students in the last 3 award years.
