Many students use loans to pay for part of their educational expenses. All loans are available to graduate and undergraduate students who attend at least half-time.
Follow these steps:
- Apply for financial aid (see the Apply for Aid). Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other financial aid forms.
- Receive an award letter from the Financial Aid Office that specifies your loan eligibility. If you wish to reduce your award, make adjustments to the award letter.
- Decide on the loan option that’s right for you. See Types of Aid for more information on the different loan types.
- Complete your loan entrance counseling and master promissory note for the Subsidized/Unsubsidized Direct Loan.
The first time you borrow a Federal Direct Loan as an Antioch University student, you must complete online student loan entrance counseling. The loan process cannot begin until you have completed your entrance counseling.
If you borrow a Federal Direct Loan or Federal Perkins Loan, you must complete student loan exit counseling before graduating or leaving Antioch University Seattle. This is required even if you plan to return to the university at a later date. To complete the required paperwork:
- Log-on to the www.studentloans.gov
- Click on Complete Counseling and then Exit Counseling to access the exit counseling process.
- Complete the process online.
