Student Loans

Federal student loans will be available to eligible students in certificate programs. Private student loans may also be available. Lenders of private loans often require a cosigner.

If a student chooses to borrow a private student loan, they should carefully review the terms and conditions for each lender. Once the preferred lender is chosen, students should complete the application through the lender. The Willamette University Financial Aid Office will certify the loan when asked by the lender to do so. Loan funds will be disbursed to Willamette University and applied toward the tuition charges on the student’s Willamette billing.

The Willamette University Financial Aid Office is can answer questions about the process of applying for private loans. However, they are not allowed to recommend a lender. If you have questions, call 503-370-6273 or email
