Student Loans

Beginning in the fall 2014 semester, Kaskaskia College will no longer be offering the Direct Loan Program through the Department of Education. Student Loans will be offered through two different preferred lenders, Sallie Mae and Wells Fargo. The interest rates, repayment options, and terms may vary depending on which lender the student chooses to use.  Students may also need to provide a credit worthy co-signer in order to qualify for a student loan or to receive a lower interest rate through one of these preferred lenders.
