There are several ways to pay your remaining costs to Warren Wilson College or to pay for other indirect costs such as books and transportation. These options include the following:
Federal Direct PLUS Loan for Parents of Undergraduate Students
The Federal Direct Parent PLUS loan is a loan specifically for parents of undergraduate students. The maximum eligibility amount per academic year is the school’s estimated cost of attendance minus the combined total of all other aid. If the parent is denied the PLUS loan based on credit and is not seeking an endorser (co-signer), the student will then be eligible for additional unsubsidized loan funds. Remember, the student is only eligible for these additional loan funds if the parent(s) is denied a PLUS loan.
Federal Direct PLUS Loan for Graduate Students
The Federal Direct Plus Loan for Graduates is a loan specifically for graduate students only. The maximum eligibility amount per academic year is the school’s estimated cost of attendance minus the combined total of all other aid.
Private Student Loan
Private student loans are consumer loans that are designed to supplement financial aid and cannot when combined with other aid, exceed the cost of attendance established by the college. A student must apply with a bank or lending entity of their choice and have their application credit-approved before they are eligible to borrow this type of loan. In most cases, a student will be awarded a better interest rate if they have a co-signer for their loan. These loans are not backed by the Federal Government and should only be utilized as a last resource to fund your education.
