  1. Review the “Additional Loan Options” section of the Award Offer tab in Banner Web Self Service (this is the maximum amount you could take out, not necessarily the amount you should take out). Contact the financial aid office if additional loan funds are needed beyond this amount, as a student may have additional eligibility depending on their cost of attendance. 
  2. Click on the appropriate link below to view private loan options and to complete the application process.
    • Returning students are encouraged to stay with the same lender/loan program to help ease repayment.  Click on “Financial Aid History” in Banner Web Self Service to see previous loans taken out.
    • Some lenders require the following information:
      • COST OF ATTENDANCE: Found on Banner Self-Service under Financial Aid and the Award Offer tab (this is your billable and non-billable costs combined).
      • ESTIMATED FINANCIAL AID:  Can be calculated by adding up your grants and scholarships, loans, work, and outside scholarships together (found under the Award Offer tab).
