The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Although filing the FAFSA is not a requirement for receiving the University of Evansville Academic Scholarship, it must be filed annually to establish eligibility for both the Federal Direct Loan and Federal Graduate PLUS Loan programs. File the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. The University of Evansville’s FAFSA school code is 001795.

  • 2014-15 FAFSA: File the FAFSA in the spring to establish graduate level federal loan eligibility for the summer of 2015. Students who have already filed the 2013-14 and are currently using federal aid to complete their bachelor’s degrees should not make any changes to their current FAFSA. Allow UE to assist you with FAFSA corrections immediately following graduation.

  • 2014-15 FAFSA: The FAFSA must be filed annually to establish federal loan eligibility for each new academic year. The 2014-15 academic year begins in the fall semester August 2014.

The Federal Direct Loan Program

All students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov may use the Federal Direct Loan, for terms in which they are enrolled at least half-time. UE's code for the FAFSA is 001795. The Direct Stafford Loan typically has the best terms of the educational loans available for the DPT program. Graduate students have an annual eligibility of $20,500, which starts each August and runs through the following summer. For graduate students, the loan is "unsubsidized," meaning that interest will accrue on the principal balance during college at the current fixed rate of 6.21 percent. Repayment begins six-months after college.

In the spring of 2015, the UE Office of Financial Aid will communicate directly with students who plan to begin the DPT program in the summer of 2015, offering assistance and instructions to establish eligibility for the Direct Stafford Loan. Each fall semester, graduate students begin anew to use funding from their annual eligibility of $20,500. If the student exhausts the entire $20,500 during the fall/spring terms, another type of loan would need to be used for the trailing summer term.

Additional Educational Loans

Federal Graduate PLUS Loan — Students are required to first exhaust their annual eligibility in the Federal Direct Loan before requesting funds through the Graduate PLUS Loan. The Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan allows credit-worthy students to borrow in their own name, in an amount that may cover the entire Cost of Attendance, including books and living expenses. The Graduate PLUS Loan allows for deferred repayment, although interest will accrue during college.

Private Educational loans — Many educational lenders offer loans in the student's name with repayment deferred until after graduation. Most lenders require a credit-worthy cosigner and have variable interest rates.
