A variety of student loan programs are available to students enrolled in MMS: DKU. You are eligible to apply for a combination of federal and alternative student loans to meet the cost of tuition, fees, books, and related living expenses as estimated in the cost of attendance.
How do I apply for student loans?
To apply for federal student loans, each student should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA for the upcoming academic year will be available after January 1. Applicants are encouraged to complete the FAFSA prior to their admission decision. The FAFSA should be completed with your previous year federal tax returns (i.e. 2014-15 FAFSA would be completed with 2013 Federal Tax Returns).
To apply for Private/Alternative Loan you will select your lender of choice and complete the application with that lender.
How will I know if my financial aid application is complete?
Approximately one week after you submit your FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR), which will indicate the receipt and initial processing of your application. Our financial aid office receives an electronic copy of the SAR. The FAFSA data for admitted students is reviewed for accuracy and completeness. If additional information is needed, you will receive a written request from DKU. If no additional information is required, you will receive a financial aid award notice as stated above. Our financial aid office begins reviewing of financial aid applications in March and sends out award notices on a rolling basis. If you are admitted and have completed your FAFSA after March 1, it will take approximately one month to receive an award notice. Once you have completed your loan promissory notes as instructed in the award notice it will take approximately 2-3 weeks for your lender to follow up with an approval notice/disclosure statement verifying your approval.
When should I start contacting lenders to apply for a private/alternative loan?
Contact lenders after you have received your award notice. Students who anticipate borrowing alternative student loans may consider contacting lenders earlier to make certain that they are creditworthy loan borrowers.
