Graduate Students can apply for federal and private, alternative loans
Although California College of the Arts may have determined that you are eligible to borrow a PLUS loan or alternative loan, you are under no obligation to accept any loan.
Declining a loan will neither jeopardize other financial aid offered to you nor will it prevent you or your parent(s) from borrowing later in the term or in the future.
An educational loan is a serious financial obligation and must be repaid.
Defaulting on any loan will seriously damage your credit rating. Complete information on educational loan repayment is available within the Financial Aid Office.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the Financial Aid Office.
