TORRINGTON, WY –
Eastern Wyoming College students will now use the Federal Direct Loan program for all federal student loans.
“The most important message for students to hear is that there will still be student loans and there are many benefits available to them,” shared EWC Financial Aid Director Molly Williams.
EWC will participate in the Federal Direct Loan (subsidized and unsubsidized student loans), and Federal Parent PLUS Direct Loan programs.
Through this program, students borrow from the federal government through their college and private lenders are eliminated.
The first step to apply for a Federal Direct Loan is to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), www.fafsa.ed.gov. The second step is to contact the financial aid office at the college in which you plan to attend.
Private student loans are available through a number of lenders. Please contact the EWC Financial Aid Office for a list of these lenders and for information about applying for private student loans.
If you have any questions, please contact the financial aid office at the College at 307.532.8325 or visit the website atewc.wy.edu/future/finaid/index.cfm.
