Financing Computers

Students with demonstrated financial need may purchase a computer through a long-term, subsidized financial aid loan. Subsidized loans allow the deferment of repayment and bear no interest until after graduation.

Students without financial need, who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, may obtain unsubsidized federal loans that allow deferment of payment, but which bear interest from the time the loan is made.
