University of Saint Joseph School of Pharmacy students who have been accepted and matriculated into the Pharmacy program may apply for Federal Direct Loans by completing the following steps:
The following amounts are based on a 12 month period, or one full academic year:
The following amounts are based on a 9 month period:
The actual amount you may borrow will depend on your financial aid need and actual cost of attendance. You should contact Financial Aid for additional information on application requirements and procedures.
Your graduate debt limit includes loans for undergraduate study.
If you reach your Federal (subsidized and/or unsubsidized) aggregate loan limit, you cannot receive any more of that type of loan. If you exceed your limit, aid already disbursed will be billed back. You will have to find alternative ways to finance your education.
Therefore, it is to your advantage to borrow only what you need for educational expenses, and to keep track of your cumulative debt. The Student Financial Services staff is happy to work with you to find ways to minimize your borrowing.
Lifetime limits – Graduate/Professional $ 224,000 (maximum $65,500 subsidized).
Once a graduate student has exhausted the Stafford Loan option, the Grad PLUS Loan may be available if additional funds are needed. This federal student loan has a higher interest rate than the Stafford Loan and requires the borrower to have an adequate credit history. Students are eligible to borrow up to the cost of attendance minus any other aid. View more information.
Students interested in additional funding may apply for an Alternative Education Loan. See our Alternative Loan page for information regarding Alternative Loans and lenders.
