While student loans are a vital piece of many students’ award packages, we strongly encourage all students to borrow responsibly. Here are some sensible borrowing tips:

  • T在这里 are certain dollar limits students may borrow in all Federal Direct Student Loan programs. 确保你有足够的剩余联邦援助资格来支付你项目的剩余部分, 你应该考虑你的项目的剩余费用和你在联邦学生贷款项目中的剩余资格. 我们的财务援助顾问可以帮助您确定这些费用以及如何最大限度地提高您剩余的联邦援助资格.
  • Borrow as little as possible to cover costs, and only borrow what is needed for education-related expenses.
  • 考虑一下你估计的月供,不要借超过你合理偿还能力的钱. Your loan payment should 不 exceed 10 percent of your monthly income.
  • When you take out a student loan, you are entering a binding contract. 拖欠学生贷款会对你的信用产生负面影响,甚至会影响你找工作的能力. If you are unable to afford your monthly loan payment, contact your loan servicer immediately to discuss other repayment options.

接受联邦财政援助的学生必须达到令人满意的学术进步(SAP)标准,以确保成功完成课程,以便继续获得财政援助. Loyola University New Orleans, in accordance with Federal Regulations, 在每学期结束时审查所有学生的学习成绩,以确定每个学生是否满足定性和定量的SAP要求. 未能满足其中一项或两项SAP要求将导致失去获得联邦财政援助的资格. For more details, please review our SAP policy 在这里.
