Federal Nursing Student Loans

Nursing Student Loans

This federally funded loan is awarded by Temple University to undergraduate nursing students based on evaluated financial need. Funds are limited and usually awarded to supplement Federal Direct Loans.

All eligible undergraduate nursing students that file the FAFSA will be reviewed for funding.

  • Documented financial need (as determined by the FAFSA),
  • Federal verification are required before funding can be disbursed and
  • At least part-time enrollment per semester is required. 

The interest rate is 5%, and interest is subsidized until repayment begins, which occurs nine months after the student completes or withdraws from their academic program.
