Other Financing Options

If your family's resources plus the financial aid award are insufficient to meet the full cost for the year, consider one or more of the following financing options:

Private alternative loans

  • If you've exhausted all other financial aid options, you may want to consider applying for an alternative educational loan.
  • Students enrolled at least half time are eligible and can apply for this type of loan on their own if creditworthy. If not, a creditworthy cosigner will be required.
  • Students can borrow up to cost of attendance minus other aid received.
  • Payments are deferred as long as the student remains enrolled half time, but interest will accrue while in school.
  • Here's how to apply.

UIndy payment plan options
