The Student Loan Administration Office is responsible for processing student loans and work-study for students in the graduate and professional schools and divisions. We also conduct entrance and exit student loan counseling for all students who receive federal student loans, and authorize disbursements of federal student loan funds. In addition, we provide service and collections for all Federal Perkins and institutional loan programs.

Our goal is to service and counsel graduate students with financing their education through student loans and work-study. We are also focused on informing and guiding current students on borrowing responsibly and alumni on available loan repayment terms and options. Our commitment is to help students determine the best options for financing their education. Furthermore, we are dedicated to ensuring that students will leave the university with an understanding of their loan terms and conditions for repayment.
