Student applying for student loans.

Financial Aid & Student Loans

Students can apply for direct-to-consumer student loans.

Because this is not in a degree granting program, students are not eligible for financial aid.

However, you may be eligible for a direct-to-consumer alternative loan. These private loans do not require school certification, and proceeds are paid directly to the borrower. Specify to the lender that you are applying for a direct-to-consumer loan or that you will be taking Continuing Education classes.

UMass Amherst does not endorse any individual alternative loan - you should compare programs and choose those that best fit your needs.
