     Federal Direct Loans

This is a loan you must repay that comes in two ways: subsidized and unsubsidized. A subsidized loan means you will not be charged interest on your loan while you are in school. An unsubsidized loan means interest will be charged while you are in school.

Subsidized loans are available for up to $3,500 if you qualify. An additional $6,000 in unsubsidized loans may be available as well. These loans are not subject to credit approval and are available to most students regardless of credit history. Instructions for filing are in the Student Financial Packet that you receive at the information session.

 cspn-loans    Other Student Loans

Other student loans may also be available to you. The loan limit is individually based, and the interest rate is usually much higher than a Direct Loan. For this loan, you need to have good credit or a co-signer with good credit. You will need to contact different banks to see who offers these loans. Wells-Fargo has two alternative student loan programs, and PNC Bank, and Charter One Bank have loans available as well. Another loan program is through Campus Door. Check with local agencies to see what would offer you the best loan package. CSPN has no relationship with, nor does it endorse any bank mentioned here. The banks listed here are suggestions for your convenience.


The School Scholarship is offered to all Cuyahoga County residents –thanks to the generosity of the John Huntington Fund for Education. All applicants who reside in Cuyahoga County and apply for a scholarship will receive at least $1,500. This scholarship can only be used for tuition at CSPN and is non-transferable.
