The University of South Carolina offers several loan options for students and their families to help meet the student's cost of education.
Please review all of your options and only borrow what you need.
While we will automatically notify students with complete applications of their Federal Direct Loan eligibility, you should pursue scholarships, grants, and student employment opportunities before accepting this or any loan. If borrowing still remains a necessity, we strongly encourage researching all of the loan programs available in order to determine the best choice (considering cost of borrowing, interest expense, repayment provisions, and potential loan servicing fees) for you.
