2) Private Student Loan

This loan is to help students who need additional funds to help meet their educational expenses. Many of our students use Citizens One, NC Assist , PNC Bank, Sallie Mae, or Wells Fargo. In most cases, the student applicant will need a creditworthy co-signer. The loan can be applied for online and the approval or disapproval will be communicated to the student instantly after the application is completed. Private loans cannot be greater than the cost of attendance minus all other estimated financial aid. All terms and conditions are set by the bank or lending institution. All private loan options should be carefully researched and considered.

Your parent may be interested in borrowing from the Federal Direct PLUS Loan program (if he or she meets certain eligibility requirements). For additional information, or to apply, visit The parent wanting to apply will need to sign in using their FSA ID username and password.  If your parent is approved for the Federal Direct Parent PLUS loan he or she may borrow the balance needed.
