The amount you are eligible to borrow depends on a number of factors. First your "financial need" must be determined by your school. This is the result of the cost of attendance less your expected family contribution (calculated from your FAFSA) less any other financial aid you have been awarded. In addition, each loan program has limits to the amount you can borrow for an academic year. The first step in determining eligibility is to apply for financial aid, complete the FAFSA. From this information, the school will work with you to generate an award package specifically for you.
