Many students find federal loans to be the best way to pay for their college education. That’s why we participate in the Federal Direct Loan Program, which consists of the Federal Direct Stafford (subsidized) Loan, the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, the Federal Direct PLUS Loan, and the Federal Direct Consolidation Loan Program. The U.S. Department of Education is the lender and, except for consolidation loans, delivers loan proceeds through the school. WU disburses the loans after loans have been processed and approved and classes have begun. When it is time for repayment, you (or your parents) will send all loan payments to the federal loan servicer.
If all of this seems overwhelming, our financial aid counselors can guide you through the process of applying for loans. They’ll work with you to make this experience as easy as possible. If you have any questions, please call our office directly: (863) 638-7202.
