Graduate and Professional Student Loans
Loans are financial aid awards that require repayment with interest under varying terms and conditions. The loans must be repaid after you graduate, withdraw from college, or drop below half-time enrollment status (fewer than six units per quarter). Note that the loan amount you request in addition to all awards received cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
