Loan Forgiveness: 

Some graduates of the SchoolCounseling@Denver program may be eligible for federal loan forgiveness programs. To see if you qualify, review the Federal Student Aid website for more information on federal loan forgiveness programs.

Applying for Federal Student Aid: 

In order to apply for federal student aid, including student loans, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The University of Denver’s school code is 001371. You will need to complete the FAFSA each academic year to remain eligible for federal student aid. We encourage students to begin the FAFSA while they apply for admission. Students must take at least 4 credits a quarter in order to receive federal aid.
