Federal Student Loans versus Private Education Loans

The Office of Financial Aid strongly encourages students to apply for federal financial aid when eligible by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each academic year. The terms and conditions on federal loans are more advantageous than Private Loans and are very beneficial for Chicago-Kent students who have high loan debt.
