      Private education loan disclosure

      ATSU offers a student Title IV federal financial aid up to the student’s cost of attendance. While there are many benefits to using federal loans, there are instances where federal loans do not cover a student’s cost of attendance. Private loans may present an opportunity to assist students with funding their education.

      ATSU utilizes FASTChoice to deliver a preferred lender list. The lenders and loan options presented in FASTChoice were selected for the competitive terms and benefits they provide to borrowers. ATSU has worked with these lenders in the past, and previous borrowers have had positive experiences working with them.

      Things to consider:

      • Private loan annual amount: The cost of attendance minus any scholarships, Federal loans, Work-Study, and/or other aid received.
      • Creditworthy: Approval of a Federal Direct Grad PLUS or private loan is contingent upon your creditworthiness.
      • Interest rates and fees: Depending on the lender and loan opportunity, fixed and variable rates are available. A student’s credit score and/or having a cosigner may positively impact the rate offered to that student.
      • As with all loans, students should read the details of each loan and ask the lender questions to make sure they fully understand the commitment they are making.

      Students are free to choose any lender, including those not presented. Application processing will not be delayed unnecessarily if a student chooses a lender not presented.

      Our officials are prohibited from accepting any financial or other benefits in exchange for displaying lenders and loan options in FASTChoice. Prohibited activities include: receiving compensation to serve on any lender board of directors or advisory boards; accepting gifts including trips, meals, and entertainment; allowing lenders to staff our institution's financial aid office; allowing lenders to place our institution's name or logo on any of their products; and owning of lenders' stock (for college officials who make financial decisions for our institution).
