Student Loans

The Direct Student Loan Program 

We participate exclusively in the Federal Direct Student Loan Program (Subsidized Student Loans, Unsubsidized Student Loans and Parent Loans), where the federal government is the lender. Loans are currently disbursed in two installments in a given semester. 

If you and/or your parent(s) are interested in federal loans, you will be REQUIRED to: 

  • complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA),
  • complete the CVCC Loan Request Form,
  • complete entrance counseling through the Direct Student Loan Program,
  • and complete a Master Promissory Note. 

Make sure you are familiar with the loan policies and procedures

Qualifying applicants may receive forgiveness of certain loans through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program

Federal Direct Student Loans 

Also known as Federal Stafford Student Loans. Be sure you have already completed the FAFSA prior to applying for a loan.
