Loans are often a large part of financing your education. We are here to help you through the process.


Undergraduate students, graduate students, and parents all have access to different loan programs. Some of these programs are based on financial need with fixed interest rates, and some are available based on a credit check with variable interest rates.

Review the options below, and contact a financial aid counselor if you have further questions about what option is right for you. Delaware Valley University also has payment plans through the Bursar’s office. You may choose to use one of these options or you can combine the options to fit your education needs.

Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loan

This is a loan in the student's name and will be indicated on the financial aid award letter as a Federal Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loan. Always borrow the maximum through this program first before other loan programs.

Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)

Parents can borrow up to the Cost of Attendance (COA) for the year minus the student’s other financial resources. COA includes the direct cost of tuition, room, board and fees, plus an allowance for books and personal expenses. This allowance for books and personal expenses is determined by the university and the parent cannot exceed the amount listed. PLUS loan fees may be included in the COA.

Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan

Graduate students can borrow $20,500 per year directly from the federal government. To apply visit Student Aid.
