Federal Student Loan Programs

Purdue Global students are eligible to apply for the Title IV federal student loan programs. The University currently offers Subsidized Stafford, Unsubsidized Stafford, and Parent/Grad PLUS loans through the William D. Ford Direct Loan program with the U.S. Department of Education.

Federal loans are generally lower-interest rate loans offering students a grace period in which payments are not due, as well as multiple repayment plans.

Loan Entrance Counseling

The U.S. Department of Education requires that all students wishing to borrow under the federal Stafford loan program participate in a loan entrance counseling before receiving funds. To help you satisfy this requirement, visit the Entrance Counseling section of the Federal Student Aid website. Please note, to complete this Entrance Counseling and Exam you will need your FSA ID to access your loan documentation.

Applying for Student Loans

Whether you are a first-time borrower or a continuing student borrower, you may apply for a Direct Loan by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and electronically signing a Master Promissory Note (MPN).
