Additional Loan Options
Students who have reached the maximum Stafford Loan amounts through the above Financial Aid process have two options: a private loan or a Graduate Plus Loan (GradPLUS).
Private loans are an option for students and families to assist them in paying for educational expenses that are not covered by other types of financial aid. It is strongly recommended that you apply for federal aid first as federal loan programs often have more favorable terms than private loans. While we want to make information on loan borrowing available to all eligible participants, we by no means want to advocate unnecessary borrowing. We recommend a student borrow conservatively and only what they need.
Endicott College invited lenders to provide information about their education loan products through a Request for Information (RFI) process. The College reviewed the information provided, and based upon that information, identified options as having competitive rates, good customer service and attractive borrower benefits. Endicott College strictly adheres to a Code of Conduct for Education Loans in the selection of private loan lenders.
You are welcome to borrow from any lender of your choice without penalty whether or not that lender is listed here and we will be happy to answer questions or provide information as you identify the loan options that will best suit your needs.
To help our students navigate the increasingly complex private loan landscape, Endicott College has partnered with a company called Elm Select. To review a list of commonly used private loan options, click here to link to Elm Select
