Financial Aid Loans



Although institutional scholarships and grants make up a large portion of the financial aid received by students, many students and parents also opt to borrow loans.

Student loans are an expected part of paying educational costs. Syracuse University makes every effort to ensure that students who invest in their education by borrowing student loans graduate with reasonable debt levels. Students are offered personalized loan counseling sessions throughout their college career, especially at the time of graduation.

Types of Loans

A variety of low-interest loans are available to assist Syracuse University students and parents with the cost of college. Some loans are based on financial need, and all loans take into consideration the Cost of Attendance and any other sources of financial aid that is being received.
