    Financial Aid

    Advertisements



    So I have a question for all you SGU alums about the cost and paying for SGU. I am a US citizen and plan on receiving financial aid to pay for my medical education at SGU. Can anyone tell me if the financial aid awarded by the federal govt will pay for my entire education and living expenses. I do not expect to live "high on the hog" and have LOTS of experience living cheaply as an older student who returned to school after nearly a decade in the "real world." I have been accepted to SGU and now my only remaining question is if i can afford the cost of tuition and living now that I have spent most of my savings on getting my pre-reqs over the last couple of years. Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

    It covers the cost of attendance. So yes, it includes living expenses, books...

    well....staffords are only going to cover a portion...the max per yr for sub and unsub is 22,500. the rest will be with grad plus loans...they too are federal loans, but the interest rate is higher (8.9% max) and while its not credit based, you can't have negative credit to get it on your own...but usually a good co signer will get you the loans.

    you need to be more specific...are you saying that staffords cover everything...if it does, then they must have change the maxs by leaps and bounds!

    All federal loans are through the Direct Lending Program: sub, unsub, and gradPlus. The combo of those three will cover everything for the next four years if you live within your budget.
