While it is everyone’s hope that the balance can be covered by funds you and your family have saved for college, or from additional outside scholarships you may receive, we understand that you may need other options to help cover some or all of the balance due. These options may include:
CashNet Tuition Payment Plan – You may decide to cover some or all of the balance due by contracting with Tuition Pay, which will divide your balance into 10, 11 or 12 monthly payments that usually begin in June, July or August depending on the plan you select. For more information, call (877) 821-0625.
Federal Direct Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) – This loan program enables parents to borrow the balance due plus the cost of books, supplies and other expenses (as defined by the College, based on federal guidelines). All parents and stepparents are eligible regardless of income as long as they have a good credit history.
Alternative Student Loans – Private loans are available for students to use to cover the balance due. Most require a co-signer with a good credit history. Private educational loan interest and repayment benefits differ. Use the private loan as your last option, and research and compare private loan programs before you make your final decision. Contact the Financial Aid office if you have questions.
