For students who are attending Kuyper College and have not borrowed before, Federal Direct loans are based on financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Your estimated financial aid award letter will provide you with the maximum amount you may borrow for the academic school year. You will receive this letter in mid-March if you have already been accepted to the college and completed your FAFSA for this upcoming fall. After mid-March, financial aid award letters will be sent once you have completed your FAFSA and have been accepted to Kuyper.
Alternative loans, provided by private lending institutions, are available to help students meet educational costs not covered by federal, state, institutional or personal resources.
LeAnne's Financial Aid Story
LeAnne took some time off from college and is now returning to finish her degree. She commutes instead of living on campus. The amount she is able to contribute toward her college education is relatively low, so she is able to receive full state and federal funding. She also receives an academic scholarship from Kuyper. She receives $11,000 in grants and scholarships and $12,500 in loans.
