Student Loans

Direct Unsubsidized Loans

The U.S. Department of Education offers a Direct Loan program to students with demonstrated financial need to help cover the costs of higher education. The amount you are eligible to borrow will be determined by the FAFSA and the loan must be repaid with interest. Click here to learn more about Direct Loans here.

Private Loans

Private student loans are additional loans a student can use to help cover their educational expenses. If a student does not have enough credit history established, they may need a credit-worthy co-signer. We strongly encourage students to take the time to research several lenders before making a decision. Fast Choice offers students the opportunity to simultaneously cost-compare lenders. If you have questions about private loans, please contact the Financial Aid Office at financialaid@lifepacific.edu.
