Private Loan

Private Loan Information

Remember:
  1. Apply with a cosigner for the best interest rate option!
  2. Compare at least two loans to find the better (best!) fit.

New regulations require all private loan borrowers to review a series of disclosures and complete the Applicant Self-Certification Form. You will need cost of attendance (COA) information. Once awarded, returning students may log into BannerWeb for both COA and financial aid information.

The new regulations may also mean a delay of funds (up to 21 days) received by the University, so we recommend that you allow for several weeks of processing between when you apply and when you anticipate needing the funds.

Private and alternative loan lenders offer a wide selection of educational loans to bridge the gap between expenses and the student's eligibility for other aid. Even though these loans are not part of the federal aid program, it is required that they are included in the calculation of the student's total aid package. Please be advised that the private loan in combination with other accepted financial aid cannot exceed the COA determined by the Financial Aid Office. Due to the required credit review, the University of Dallas Financial Aid office cannot guarantee that all students who apply will qualify for loan funds.

Below is a link to Elm Select which provides a list of lenders used by University of Dallas Students during the previous academic year. Please be advised that you have the right and the ability to select the educational loan provider of your choice. You are not obligated to utilize any lender listed on this list. There is no penalty for choosing a lender that is not included on this list. This is strictly an attempt to simplify the private loan application process for our students and families.

When it came time for Ana Henriquez, BA '20 and Class of 2020 valedictorian, to pick a college, she knew she wanted a small, Catholic, liberal arts university that offered both biology and Latin. That sounds like UD in a nutshell, and she thought so too. In the spring of her senior year of high school at The Atonement Academy in San Antonio, as she approached UD's campus for her last visit, she knew she would spend the next four years there and shouted to her mom, "Look, that's my tower! That's my home!"

Given his strong UD legacy, Bill Bennett, BS '20, was practically destined to attend the University of Dallas.

But while UD was in his blood, he ultimately chose UD because he wanted both a liberal arts education and a degree in physics, and he knew UD was the best place to combine the two.
