There are a wide variety of ways to pay for your education, and they all start with financial aid. We are the least expensive private college in Indiana, and we offer extensive financial aid. See above for the various types of assistance.
Federal Stafford Loans
Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits per semester) to receive a loan for that semester.
The terms of the need-based Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan Program require that the student borrower repay, with interest, this source of financial assistance. This program is referred to as subsidized because the federal government pays the interest on your loan while you are enrolled in college. Eligibility for this type of loan is determined after you complete the FAFSA.
The terms of the non-need-based Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan Program require that the student borrower repay, with interest, this source of financial assistance. Interest on Unsubsidized Stafford Loans begins to accrue after disbursement of the loan funds. The student, however, may choose to have the payment of the interest deferred during enrollment and later capitalized (added to principal) at the time repayment begins. Eligibility for this loan type is determined after completion of the FAFSA.
Annual borrowing limits for Marian University's Ancilla College students currently:
Dependency status is determined by completing the FAFSA. The laws governing the Federal Student Aid programs are based on the premise that the family is the first source of the student’s support, and the law provides several criteria that decide if the student is considered independent of his/her parents for aid eligibility. In particular, a student reaching the age of 18 or 21 or living apart from parents does not affect the dependency status. If the student is considered a dependent of his parents, information on the income and assets of the parents must be included in the FAFSA. The questions to determine dependency are in the FAFSA.
Aside from interest payments, there is approx. 1 percent loan fee on all Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans. The loan fee will be deducted from each loan by the Department of Education prior to disbursement to the college or university.
If you already have federal student loans and would like to check the interest rate, services information, and other financial aid histories, go to the National Student Loan Data System.
