Students may apply for a private (non-federal) loan. You (and your co-borrower, if applicable) should carefully research the options and select the private loan that best suits your needs. You will need to provide any documentation requested by the lender and follow the application procedure that is specific to the loan.
Steps you should take in the loan process are:
1. Complete the FAFSA.
2. Apply through Great Lakes - Fast Choice Loan Option. Complete the financial literacy component and apply for the loan. If you opt to use a lender who sends funds directly to the college, please note that Gadsden State will certify any Private Educational Loan based upon eligibility. Your loan cannot exceed $3,000 each semester based on your remaining need. When choosing a loan option, the borrower type to select will be "Undergraduate."
3. After applying for the loan & receiving notification from the lender, complete a Loan Request Form and submit to the Financial Aid Office at any of our locations.
4. Read and accept the TERMS & CONDITIONS on your Banner.
NOTE: We will not certify or process a loan until you meet Satisfactory Academic Progress and complete your requirements including the FAFSA (and required documents) and Loan Request Form.
