Alternative/Private Loans

You are about to view a website for Alternative/Private Educational Loans. A student should only apply for one of these loans after it has been determined by the Financial Aid Office at VUU that they do not qualify for any loans under the Title IV program, are not making Satisfactory Academic Progress, or if additional funding is needed to meet your educational expenses.

Please note that these loans may have variable interest rates that might be higher than the federal loan rates. The terms and conditions of these loans, interest rates, repayment options and availability of loan forgiveness vary from lender to lender so it is imperative that you do thorough research before deciding to borrow one of these loans. Students should do a search on the internet or with their bank for possible options.

A college education can be costly so you should make the best possible decision when selecting from whom to borrow. Virginia Union University (VUU) encourages all borrowers (students and parents) to use their resources and compare the various options that each lender has to offer. The website will assist you with doing some comparative shopping.

It is our objective at Virginia Union University to make sure that you receive the tools needed to make wise decisions. The Financial Aid Office will continue to process loans from any Alternative/Private Educational lender you select that will provide service to our students.

Please feel free to contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions at 804-257-5882 or 1-800-368-3227.
