NOTE: These loans are not backed by the federal government and therefore may have terms and conditions less favorable than federally funded student and parent loans. The information on this site is accurate as of the date the information was collected. Because these are private loans, lenders can change the terms and conditions of these loans without notifying JMU. We suggest you verify this information with any lender on this chart prior to applying for a loan with that company. You may borrow with any lender offering a private education loan, and you are not required to borrow with any of the lenders on this site. JMU does not discriminate against lenders and will certify loans from any private lender provided the student meets the lender''s eligibility requirements. Noncredit courses are not eligible for federal financial aid therefore FAFSA is not required.
