Financial Aid Programs
There are many different types of loans available for students. A comprehensive list of the loan programs in which Regent University participates is provided below. Additionally, it is common for loan programs to require the submission of a promissory note. For detailed information and directions on completing this process, please review our resource on Master Promissory Notes.
Federal Stafford Loan Programs
The Federal Stafford Loan Program provides loans at a low cost to students. There are two Stafford Loans that students are eligible for: Stafford Subsidized Loan and Stafford Unsubsidized Loan.

Private Loan Programs
Many private lending institutions offer credit-based loan programs to students. Students should carefully consider the interest rates, loan fees and terms of the program before making a selection. Most institutions have an online application followed by a credit check. Once the school is notified, the school will certify the loan amount. The student most likely will then be required to complete either an online or paper promissory note. Click on the title above for additional information to consider before selecting a private loan.
