Federally Backed Student Loans
LTS degree seeking students who are attending at least half-time (2.5 credits per quarter) may elect to obtain Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans.
Our goal is to help you keep your educational indebtedness as low as possible. Average salaries of clergy nationwide suggest that students could manage to repay $28,000 in loans without significantly affecting their standard of living. A conservative approach to borrowing can be a realistic way to finance a significant portion of your theological education after all other financing options are exhausted.
Under Department of Education regulations, all graduate student loans are made as unsubsidized loans. All loans will carry a fee. Interest will begin to accrue on all loans disbursed, from the date of disbursement.
A student who wishes to apply for a Direct Loan should submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the U.S Department of Education after having completed their federal income tax return. Only students planning to borrow a Stafford loan need to submit a FAFSA.
Once a FAFSA has been submitted the student should contact the financial aid office, via email, to inquire about their loan eligibility. Borrowers will also need to complete a Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling before funds may be disbursed.
