Federal Financial Aid
Any student interested in being considered for financial aid through the federal government MUST file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Santa Clara University School Code is 001326. Regardless of need, Financial Aid in the form of Federal Student loans is available for degree-seeking students who are enrolled half-time (4.5 units/quarter in Fall/Winter/Spring; 3 units in Summer) or more, and are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Additional information can be obtained from the University's Enrollment Services Center at 408-551-1000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who are interested in a Federal loan should file a FAFSA after being accepted into an ECP program.
Students filing a FAFSA prior to being admitted into an ECP program should notify email@example.com of their acceptance into ECP in order to trigger the FAFSA application.
Students wishing to obtain a loan in subsequent years must re-file in each year for which a loan is sought.
Federal Financial Aid will be credited to student accounts 10 days before the beginning of each term.

Federal Student Aid Loan Services, Repayment Plans, Loan Consolidation and Loan Forgiveness
Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program
The PSLF Program is intended to encourage individuals to enter and continue to work full-time in public service jobs. Under this program, borrowers may qualify for forgiveness of the remaining balance of their Direct Loans after they have made 120 qualifying payments on those loans while employed full time by certain public service employers. For more information please visit the U. S. Department of Education, Federal Student Aid website.
Federal Education Grants: TEACH Program
The U.S. Department of Education funds a Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant (TEACH Grant) Program. The TEACH Program requires a FAFSA (see above) and provides funds to students who are completing or who plan to complete coursework that is required to begin a career in teaching, and who agree to teach full-time for at least four years. If you are interested in a TEACH Grant, please go to the TEACH Grant website for additional information or visit the U. S. Department of Education, Federal Student Aid website.
National Health Service Corps: Loan Repayment Program
The NHSC Loan Repayment Program is open to licensed primary care medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health providers who are employed or seeking employment at approved sites.
