There are a number of loan programs, both federal and private, that can help you meet your educational expenses. The loans can be used to meet any or all of the established cost of attendance. It is possible to borrow funds for both the direct tuition expenses, as well as for reasonable living expenses. Loans must be repaid. They may be government-sponsored low-interest loans or regular bank loans at a reduced interest rate. On some loans, interest may not start to accrue until after graduation. On others, interest accrues immediately. Loans may be based on demonstrated financial need.
To be considered for a loan, you must complete the financial aid application process. We encourage you to begin the financial aid application soon after you've been admitted to our school because it may take up to three months to complete the entire process. You should start the application process before the end of June to have funds available early in the fall semester. You must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States to be eligible for most loan programs. Learn more about applying for Financial Aid at CWRU.
