You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours to be eligible for loan assistance.
DISBURSEMENT PROCEDURES *NEW*
Students that are first time borrowers (students that have never received a Federal Stafford Loan) will have a 30 day delay applied to their 1st Loan Disbursement.
Any loans awarded for a single semester are also required to have two disbursements within the semester - one 30 days after the semester starts and the other at midpoint of the semester.
Students that are returning borrowers (previously received a Federal Stafford Loan) at Pierpont or from any other post-secondary school will receive their disbursement on the regularly scheduled disbursement date (10 days prior to semester or upon completion of financial aid file). If they are borrowing for a single semester such as a Spring only loan, they will receive the loan in two disbursements with the 2nd disbursement occuring at the midpoint of the semester.
All loans are made in two equal disbursements based on your enrollment pattern. For example, if you will be attending fall & spring terms, you would receive one disbursement in fall & one in spring. There a
All new borrowers must complete Entrance Counseling prior to disbursement. As you withdraw or graduate, you are required to complete Exit Counseling. Both requirements can be completed at studentloans.gov. Even if you have received student loans elsewhere, you are required to complete Entrance Counseling at Fairmont State or Pierpont.
You may also refer to studentloans.gov for more information on all student loans.

Private loan programs are non-federal educational loans through a private lender that allows a student to borrow additional funds after federal student aid has been exhausted. Each lender has different eligibility requirements, interest rates, fees and repayment terms. Private loans cannot be consolidated with federal loans for payment purposes. It is in your best interest to borrow the maximum amount of federal student loans before you borrow from a private lender. Do not apply too early for a private loan because lenders have an expiration date on the credit check and your application will not be certified until after you are registered for classes and have been packaged for all federal and state financial aid.
Private Loan helps you bridge the gap between federal aid and the full cost of your education.
To assist you in this process, FSU has compiled a comparison list on ELM Select for different alternative lenders that we think may best match our student body. You are free to choose ANY lender whether it is on the list or not without penalty. Pierpont Community & Technical College does not endorse any particular lender.
