    SGU vet school financial aid

    Advertisements



    Does anyone know how students pay for the vet school and what the options are ?

    Are their private loans and what credit score is needed from student and cosigner ?

    is SGU affiliated with a US school to do the online degrees?

    I haven't been in school for a couple of years now, so take my answers for what they're worth.

    Private loans only. SGU is actively pursuing AVMA accreditation, and I am almost positive that if they get accredited then SGU students will be eligible for federal loans.

    No idea about the credit score. You could try to call the school.

    I have no idea about online degrees, but I doubt it. If you mean an online degree for a DVM, then I doubt it even less from any school anywhere.

    Hello Horsegurl,

    I am currently a first termer here at SGU (I just started in August). As of now, the majority of students use Sallie Mae for their student loans. I know of one person who was denied through Sallie Mae, but she was able to get a loan from SGU itself (high interest rate 13-14%).
    Sallie Mae Smart Option student loans are non-fixed interest rate, and are usually anywhere from 3-13% (I know of more than one person who have a 3.something % interest rate, and also some with 13%.) It seems like 9.3% was the most common though.
    I do not know of a specific credit score cut off to get a Sallie Mae loan.

    There are no online degree programs for DVM here (or anywhere else that I know of).

    SGU SVM is currently in the process of acquiring AVMA accreditation. We have been having meetings discussing last minute things that can be improved around campus before the site visit in April. It will take about 3-6 months for a decision to be made by the AVMA.
    If we are accredited we will be eligible for federal student loans.
    Keeping our fingers crossed here.... SGU has made a lot of improvements over the past few years.

    Hey Horsegurl

    So, you were accepted into SM Vet school? Did you send in your seat deposit before finding out you were unable to get a loan?
