Student Financial Planning

Financial Planning Sessions

The Office of Financial Aid conducts financial planning and debt management sessions throughout the academic year to help our students with understanding the landscape of the direct lending programs and our institutional loans. In addition to the annual workshops below, you can request individual counseling sessions with any of the Office of Financial Aid staff members. 

Annual Sessions

March & April - May: Group Exit Counseling Sessions and optional individual sessions (by appointment only)

Debt Management Options

Loan Consolidation

The Department of Education and other lenders offer programs in which all your federal loans may be consolidated into one loan with graduated or more manageable income-based repayments, if eligible.

In-School Loan Deferment

Deferment is a postponement of payment on a loan that is allowed under certain conditions and during which interest does not accrue on Direct Subsidized Loans, Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal Perkins Loans. All other federal student loans that are deferred will continue to accrue interest. Any unpaid interest that accrued during the deferment period may be added to the principal balance (capitalized) of the loan(s). Source:
