Direct Subsidized, Direct Unsubsidized, Direct PLUS and private loans may help cover the cost of tuition. Offered by private lenders and federal and state governments, these federal loans often feature lower interest rates than traditional loans.

Private Loans

Students enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering Controls Graduate Certificate program are not eligible for financial aid. However, private loans may help cover the cost of tuition. Please note that the Office of Scholarships for Financial Aid is unable to recommend alternative lenders.

When applying, your loan lender will likely require a loan certification to verify enrollment and cost of attendance. This process usually takes 10 to 14 business days but can take longer during peak times, and certified loans will only disburse once all documents have been received by your lender. We encourage you to consider all financial options prior to applying for private loans.
