Health Professions Loans
Health Professions Student Loans are low-interest federal loans offered to eligible full-time pharmacy and dental students. Students should include their parental information on their FAFSA. Eligibility for Health Professions Loans is reviewed as FAFSAs are received and funding is limited, so we encourage students to submit the FAFSA as early as possible.
Health Professions Loans are subsidized loans that do not accrue interest as long as you remain registered for at least twelve (12) hours each semester. Interest begins to accrue at the rate of five (5) percent annually, twelve (12) months after you graduate or drop below the full time (twelve credit hour) registration requirement.
Repayment of the principal, together with accrued interest, will be required within a 10-year period, excluding any eligible periods of deferment.
Required paperwork for these loans must be completed each semester. The Office of Financial Aid will contact students to complete this paperwork.
Information is subject to change without notice due to changes in federal, state and/or institutional rules and regulations. Students must complete a FAFSA every year. Students must be making satisfactory academic progress to continue to receive financial aid.
