Private Student Loans
Prior to considering private student loans, students are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually by the March 10 Priority Application Receipt Deadline to receive maximum consideration for financial aid. Private Student Loans should be considered after all other sources of financial aid (grants, scholarships, federal work-study, and federal student loans) have been exhausted.
The IU Kokomo Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will review and certify Private/Alternative Loans for eligible students with your preferred lender.
At the request of an enrolled or admitted student applicant for a private educational loan (or to the parent loan applicant of an enrolled or admitted student), an institution must provide the Self-Certification form to the applicant with the information requested in Section 2 of the form, to the extent that the institution possesses the information. Section 2 of the Self-Certification form requests the following information:
-- The student's Cost of Attendance (COA) for the period of enrollment covered by the loan;
-- Any estimated Financial Assistance (EFA) for the period of enrollment covered by the loan; and,
-- The difference between the COA and EFA.
