For each complete year of teaching, $5,000 of loan debt is forgiven.

Private student loans should be considered “last resort” opportunities. You should utilize all other financing options before applying for a private product. Remember, federal student loan programs are less expensive that private loans and should be considered first. Private loan interest typically begins accruing immediately and fluctuates with market rates. Undergraduate private loan borrowers will typically be required to have a cosigner.

The lender, not AUM, determines eligibility for a private student loan. However, the university is required to certify your enrollment and calculate the amount you can borrow. The total loan amount is limited to cost of education minus financial assistance. Private student loan checks are mailed directly to the AUM Cashier Office, and require both the university and student must endorse the check for the funds to be applied to the student AUM account.

The university does not endorse or recommend any specific private loan lenders or products.  A nonprofit, independent website that provides information about private student loan programs and offers a comparison calculator.

Register or verify registration status with Selective Service. Males age 18 and above MUST be registered with Selective Service to meet eligibility requirements for federal and state aid programs.
