Loans for Undergraduate Students

Loans can be a welcome source of financial aid for undergraduate students whose scholarships and grants do not cover the full cost of attending NSU. However, it is important to keep in mind that every dollar you borrow must be repaid with interest, and that not all loans are created equal.  As a general rule of thumb, federal student loans usually offer students and parents more favorable conditions than private loans. 

Below are some of the types of loans that may be available to you and your parent(s) at Nova Southeastern University.
