While Grove City College does not accept or certify any loans under the Federal Direct Student Loan Program (Student or Parent Programs), most large banks or loan companies offer private, alternative student loans to qualified borrowers that can be used to fund a college education. Before applying, you'll want to verify that the loan is a private issuance and not a federal one. Carefully review terms and conditions. Read our Statement on Federal Funding.
You will want to read the Grove City College Outside Scholarship and Loan Policy to understand the requirements and guidelines on how loans that are sent directly to the student are administered by the College.
Securing loans from any source is the student’s responsibility. Upon request, the College will certify, except for federal financial aid, enrollment and provide other data with an understanding that it is fulfilling a service to its students. The provision of that service does not indicate that the College is a recipient of the loan received by the student or that it is in any way administering any portion of the loan program, or that it is responsible for decisions made by the lenders. Before exploring your loan options, please review the Grove City College Financial Aid Code of Conduct.
