The primary means of financial aid for Graduate students at William Jessup University are Unsubsidized Stafford loans. Unsubsidized Stafford loans are funded by the Department of Education and are borrowed in the student’s name. A graduate student is eligible for $20,500 per academic year in Unsubsidized loans, and the current rate for loans disbursed after July 1, 2014 and before June 30, 2015 is 6.21%.

Amount: $20,500 Per Academic Year
Eligibility: Graduate students enrolled at least half-time per semester, and whom have completed a FAFSA
Interest Rate: 6.21% for Unsubsidized Stafford Loans disbursed between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015
5.41% for Unsubsidized Stafford Loans disbursed between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014
Repayment: Typically begins 6 months after student graduates, drops below half-time or withdraws from school, but specific lenders may have different repayment requirements.
Renewal: Annually renewable once you complete a FAFSA, the Master Promissory Note (MPN), and Entrance Counseling.
Application: FAFSA with WJU listed, Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling
The Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling are two separate processes and both must be completed online in order for the loans to be put on your student account.
Note: All Direct Loans have a Default Fee of 1.072% taken from the gross amount of the loan.
Federal regulation requires students to complete Exit Counseling within 30 days of graduating, dropping below 6 units or withdrawing from school.

Who is Eligible?

In order to receive a Stafford loan, a student must be enrolled half-time, be in good standing with all previous student loans, meet William Jessup University’s Satisfactory Academic Policy (SAP) Requirements, and be an eligible citizen or non-citizen of the United States. Since an Unsubsidized loan is not awarded based on financial need, the only step to receive the loan is to fill out a FAFSA with William Jessup Listed (School Code 001281). Students who have not previously borrowed at William Jessup University, would also need to complete Entrance Counseling and sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN), both of which can be completed at Studentloans.gov.

We want to stress the importance of being a smart borrower for Graduate school, and only borrowing what you really need. For those who can afford to pay a small amount out of pocket for schoool, it has a compounding effect on minimizing your overall student loan debt. For those who cannot afford to pay out of pocket, and need extra financial assistance, there is an option to borrow a Graduate PLUS loan. While there are no aggregate limits on a PLUS loan, you cannot borrow more than the cost of your attendance minus any other type of financial aid you receive. The current rate for Graduate PLUS loans is 7.21% and there is a 4.288% origination charge. For more information, contact David Judy in the Financial Aid office.

Amount: Up to the cost of attendance minus financial aid.
Eligibility: Credit-based loan for Graduate students who are enrolled at least half-time.
Interest Rate: 7.21% for all loans disbursed between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015 (interest accrues while loan is deferred)
6.41% for all loans disbursed between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014 (interest accrues while loan is deferred)
Repayment: Begins 60 days after the funds are fully disbursed, but can be deferred until after the student graduates.
Renewal: Not renewable. Must apply yearly.
Application: PLUS Loan Entrance Counseling and PLUS Loan Request/Application
Both processes are required in order to complete the PLUS Loan process.
Additionally a PLUS Loan Request Form MUST be submitted to the Financial Aid Office.
Fees: A 4.288% Origination Fee is taken out of the requested amount. Be sure to include this amount in your request.

You may also consider borrowing an Alternative or Private education loan. Alternative or Private Student Loans are designed to supplement federal, state, and institutional financial aid. Borrowers must be credit worthy, many times requiring a co-signer. Loan programs may vary widely. Students should only consider obtaining an Alternative or Private Student Loan if they have maximized all Federal Stafford Loan options! Please visit our Private Loan Marketplace for more information.

Amount: Up to the cost of attendance minus financial aid.
Eligibility: Credit-based loan for students who are enrolled in 6 or more units. Borrower must be a US Citizen, eligible non-citizen, or an international student with a U.S. Citizen Cosigner. Both eligible non-citizens and international students need to have a current address in the United States.
Interest Rate: Varies according to lender and borrower (and cosigner) credit history.
Repayment: Begins 6 months after student graduates, drops below half-time or withdraws from school.
Renewal: Not renewable. Must apply yearly.
Application: We recommend using the Private Loan Marketplace. However, you are free to choose your own private lender.
Note: Alternative or Private Student Loans are designed to supplement federal, state, and institutional financial aid. Borrowers must be credit worthy, many times requiring a co-signer. Loan programs may vary widely. Students should only consider obtaining an Alternative or Private Student Loan if they have maximized all Federal Stafford Loan options!
Exit Counseling

Student loan borrowers are required by the federal government to complete Exit Counseling within 30 days of graduating, dropping below 6 units or withdrawing from school. You can view how much you’ve taken out in student loans, see who your lenders and loan servicers are on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).
