Undergraduate Students

Before you borrow, we recommend that all students apply for need-based aid. If you have already applied for aid and have received your aid letter from our office, you can use the links below to learn more about loan options to assist with your family contribution here at Duke.

Note: All federal and most private loans require the borrower to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Parents of Undergraduate Students

As a parent, you can apply to borrow on your student's behalf to help cover the cost of Duke. Parent loans do not impact a student's credit history or debt burden, but they do require a credit check for the parent borrower. The federal government offers a fixed-rate loan program with flexible repayment options. While some private lenders also offer parent loans, we recommend you explore the federal options first. To find out more about what loan may be right for you, see the links below.

Note: All federal and most private loans require the borrower to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
