Student Loans

The biggest concern for students these days is to get financial assistance for their studies. Explore the following:

Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility criteria for student loan determine who is eligible to get the aid. The main requirement includes that you have a financial need and you are a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen ready to be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program. Age, race, income or field of study won’t affect your eligibility criteria for student aid.

Most students are eligible to receive financial aid from USEC to help pay for college or career school. Your age, race, or field of study won’t affect your eligibility for student aid. While your income is taken into consideration, it does not automatically prevent you from getting student aid.

To receive student aid, you’ll need to:

  • Meet the requirements to obtain a college or career school education, either by having a high school diploma or a certificate

  • Enrollment as a regular student for a regular degree program or certificate program and selection for Selective Service (for male) and have a valid social security number

  • Make sure you are not in default on a student loan and do not owe a refund on a grant and you will use student aid only for educational purposes.

  • Must maintain satisfactory academic progress
