Frequently Asked Questions

APPLYING
  • We offer a private loan for parents and students, the Palmetto Assistance Loan (PAL), as well as a state-funded loan for students who go into teaching, the South Carolina Teachers Loan.
  • The sooner you apply for a loan, the better. After you have filed your FAFSA, your college financial aid office will determine your eligibility for scholarships, grants, and federal student loans. Once determined, they will mail you a financial aid award letter detailing your total eligibility.

    If you need funding beyond the federal loans, you are welcome to apply for our private loan, the Palmetto Assistance Loan.

  • If you are borrowing a Palmetto Assistance Loan then you have the following options:

    1. Deferred payment – Payments are not required during enrollment or during your initial grace period.
    2. Fixed payment – A $25 monthly payment is required while you are in school.
    3. Interest payment – Pay the monthly accrued interest while you are in school.

    Once you graduate or fall below half-time, you will start making full monthly payments (principal and interest) sixty days after that time.
