Quinnipiac Law Loans

We recognize that many of you rely on a variety of resources, such as loans, to assist with paying for your law education. As you consider the available loan options, keep in mind that some loans are costlier than others. We recommend that you consider federal loans first as they offer a fixed interest rate and generally have the best terms and conditions.

Federal Direct Loan Programs

The United States federal government provides loans for students who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and eligible non-citizens. The Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loan and Federal Direct PLUS Loan Programs are available to students who meet the qualifications. (Effective July 1, 2012, the Budget Control Act of 2011 eliminated the interest subsidy for Graduate/Professional students.) The Bipartisan Student Loan Certainty Act of 2013 provided new formulas for the determination of interest rates. Interest rates, which are tied to a 10-year Treasury note index plus a statutorily defined add-on, will be established each year for loans where the first disbursement is on or after July 1 through the following June 30. The interest rate will be fixed for that year and apply to the life of that loan. Read below for more detailed information and instructions for completing an application online.

Federal Loan Consolidation

Consolidating student loans is similar to refinancing, which allows a student to combine his or her federal loans (not private loans) into one big loan, usually extending the repayment period beyond the 10-year maximum. Depending on the loan amount, the new loan terms can go from 12–30 years. Although a student's minimum monthly payment can be significantly reduced, it is important to note that in most cases, this will result in additional interest being paid over the life of the loan.
