Loan amounts are short-term needs based loans that enable students to pay tuition and course materials at the beginning of registration during fall and spring registration periods amounts not exceeding $1,000. A one-time $45 origination fee is applied to the loan. Repayment of a loan and fee is the responsibility of the student and is required by the student to repay as defined by the terms stated in the promissory note.
