Federal and Private Loans

The Center for Professional Education offers non-degree certificate programs, and our students are not eligible for federal student loans or deferments on existing student loans. Currently, the only educational loan available to CPE’s non-credit students is Sallie Mae’s Smart Option Student Loan with a private loan from a bank/credit union. To learn more about the Sallie Mae “Smart Option Student Loan for Undergraduate Students” education loan and to apply, please visit https://www.salliemae.com/student-loans/smart-option-student-loan/.

Enrollment is not guaranteed without payment or confirmation that a loan has been approved and will be disbursed.

Regardless, enrollment is not guaranteed without up-front payment or confirmation that a loan has been approved and will be disbursed.
