Expedited loan disbursement

A week quarter may still be considered a standard term if it contains a class or classes that begin not more than two weeks before the official beginning date of the term or that end not more than two weeks after the official ending date of the term for a total period not to exceed two weeks.

For example, a week quarter containing a class that extends two weeks beyond the normal term ending date may still be considered a standard term, even though the combined length of the term and the extended class 14 weeks exceeds the maximum 13 weeks allowed for a quarter.

The limited exception for week quarters preserves a flexibility that was allowed under the policy on standard term length that was in effect prior to the implementation of the changes described in the November 5, Electronic Announcement. Under prior policy a quarter could not exceed 12 weeks, but a quarter with a class or classes that extended beyond the normal term beginning or ending dates by not more than two weeks could still be considered a standard term.

Note that the requirements described above do not apply to standard terms in a subscription-based academic calendar. As explained earlier, classes in a subscription-based program are not required to begin and end within a term. Standard terms including standard terms in a subscription-based program may not overlap within a program.

Except for subscription-based programs, in a program using a standard term academic calendar you may combine two or more consecutive shorter nonstandard terms often called modules and treat them as a single standard term such as a semester or quarter. For example, you might offer a program in a series of modules, each of which is six weeks in length, with students earning six quarter credits in each module.

Although a single 6-week module could not constitute a quarter because it contains fewer than the minimum nine weeks required for a quarter , you could choose to treat two consecutive 6-week modules as a single week quarter.

As shown below, a school could choose to group three 5-week modules together and treat them as a week semester, or it could combine four 4-week modules into a week semester:.

On the other hand, programs offered in modules may also be treated as nonstandard term or non-term programs. For instance, in the first of the two examples shown above the school could treat each 5-week module as a nonstandard term, or could consider this to be a non-term program.

In certain limited cases for academic programs offered in standard terms, a short nonstandard term may be combined with a preceding or following standard term and considered to be a single standard term. To consider the program as being offered in standard terms, you must combine the intersession with either the fall semester or the spring semester and treat the combined intersession and semester as a single term.

If you choose to take this approach, the same treatment must be applied for all FSA purposes to all students enrolled in the program.

In some cases, an intersession may partially overlap one or more standard terms. If the intersession overlaps just one standard term, you may still consider the program to be offered in standard terms if you combine the overlapping intersession with the standard term and treat that combination as a single term, as described above.

If you choose not to combine an intersession with a standard term as described above and instead treat the intersession as a standalone term, or if an intersession partially overlaps more than one standard term, the program must be treated as a non-term program for Direct Loans, and a Formula 3 program for Pell Grants and Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education TEACH Grants.

Regardless of whether you treat an intersession as a standalone term or combine it with a standard term, you may not have a policy of prohibiting otherwise eligible students from receiving FSA program funds to cover costs associated with enrollment in the intersession.

A school offers a degree program in education with a 4-week intersession between two week semesters:. The academic year for this program is defined as 24 semester hours and 34 weeks of instructional time. The school may combine the intersession with one of the standard terms, and treat the program as being offered in two semesters:.

The school could also choose not to combine the terms. In this case, the program would have a 4-week nonstandard term and two standard terms semesters. As noted earlier, this means that the school would treat this as a non-term program for Direct Loan purposes and would use Formula 3 for calculating Pell Grant and TEACH Grant awards.

Periods of clinical work such as medical and education program work which is conducted outside the classroom may not be included in a standard term, unless all of the following apply:.

All students in the program must participate in a practicum or clinical experience and its completion is required for graduates to apply for licensure or authorization to practice the occupation those students intend to pursue;.

This may be due to constraints imposed by outside licensing bodies or the need to accommodate schedules of entities with which students are being placed e. If the clinical work meets all of the above criteria, terms which include such clinical work are not required to be considered nonstandard, nor are such programs required to be considered non-term, even if the clinical work overlaps another term.

This flexibility is limited to required clinical periods associated with standard term programs in medicine including, but not limited to, allopathic, osteopathic, nursing, veterinary, dentistry, pharmacy, and physical therapy , and student teaching required to obtain a state teaching certificate.

Generally, nonstandard terms are terms that are not semesters, trimesters, or quarters. For example, a 5-week term or a week term would be considered a nonstandard term because no standard term can be fewer than nine weeks or greater than 21 weeks in length.

Like standard terms, nonstandard terms may be equal in length or may be of different lengths. If a program is offered in a mixture of standard terms and nonstandard terms, the program is considered to be offered in nonstandard terms. Even if a school calls its terms semesters, trimesters, or quarters, they are considered to be nonstandard terms if they do not comply with the policy on standard term length, as described earlier.

For instance, a week semester or an 8-week quarter must be treated as a nonstandard term, because a semester cannot contain more than 21 weeks and a quarter must include a minimum of nine weeks. Semesters, trimesters, or quarters are also considered to be nonstandard terms if academic progress is not measured in the manner normally associated with the type of term.

For example, if a program is offered in week semesters but measures academic progress in quarter credit hours, the semesters would be considered nonstandard terms. A program that measures progress in clock hours is always treated as a non-term program.

Except for subscription-based programs, a program that measures progress in credit-hours is considered to be using a non-term calendar if it has:. Courses that do not begin and end within a set period of time such as a term;. Courses that overlap terms;.

Self-paced and independent study courses that overlap terms; or. Sequential courses that do not begin and end within a term.

The payment period is applicable to all FSA programs except the Federal Work-Study FWS Program. For example, FSA program disbursements except FWS payments must be made on a payment period basis, as discussed in detail later in this chapter.

The definition of a payment period depends on the kind of academic calendar your school uses and the FSA program for which you are disbursing funds. For reference, the payment period definitions described in detail below are summarized in Table 1 at the end of this section.

For credit-hour programs with standard terms or with nonstandard terms that are substantially equal in length, the payment period is the term. Nonstandard terms are considered to be substantially equal in length if no term in a program is more than two weeks of instructional time longer than any other term in the program.

Nonstandard terms are considered to be not substantially equal in length if any nonstandard term in a program is more than two weeks of instructional time longer than another term in the same program.

For the Pell Grant, TEACH Grant, and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant FSEOG programs, the payment period for a credit-hour program with nonstandard terms that are not substantially equal in length is the term.

For the Direct Loan Program, if a program has nonstandard terms that are not substantially equal in length, the payment period is the same as described below for clock-hour and non-term programs. For a nonstandard term program, a school may have to use different payment periods for Direct Loans than the payment periods used for FSA grants.

In this example, we show how the payment periods for a Pell Grant and a Direct Loan can differ in a program that has nonstandard terms that are not substantially equal in length. In this program, the payment periods for Pell Grants are the terms, while the payment periods for the Direct Loan are the non-term payment periods.

Pell Grant: Payment periods are the nonstandard terms three disbursements. Nonstandard term 1: 12 weeks. Nonstandard term 2: 6 weeks. Nonstandard term 3: 12 weeks. Direct Loan: Payment periods are determined by credit-hours and weeks two disbursements. As noted earlier, these same payment period requirements also apply when disbursing Direct Loans to students enrolled in programs with nonstandard terms that are not substantially equal in length.

A student successfully completes clock or credit hours if the school considers the student to have passed the coursework associated with those hours. Note: If you are determining the payment periods for a program for which one of the measures either clock or credit hours or length of instructional time is less than an academic year and the other measurement is not , the program is considered less than an academic year in length, and you follow the payment period rules below for a program that is one academic year or less in length.

The first payment period is the period in which the student successfully completes half of the credit or clock hours AND half of the weeks of instructional time in the program. The second payment period is the period in which the student completes the remainder of the program. For any remaining portion of a program that is more than half of an academic year as measured in both clock or credit hours and weeks of instructional time , but less than a full academic year—.

The first payment period is the period in which the student successfully completes half of the credit or clock hours AND half of the weeks of instructional time in the remaining portion of the program; and.

The second payment period is the period of time in which the student successfully completes the remainder of the program. For any remaining portion of a program that is half of an academic year or less, the payment period is the remainder of the program.

The illustration below shows how Pell Grants and Direct Loans would be disbursed for a student enrolled half-time in a program of 48 semester credits that a full-time student completes in 60 weeks of instructional time. For this program, the school has defined the academic year as 24 semester credits and 30 weeks of instructional time.

Under the regulations, this half-time student would receive second disbursements after completing half of the credit hours AND half of the weeks of instructional time in the academic year.

Because the student in the example is enrolled only half time, it takes the student 30 weeks of instructional time to successfully complete 12 credit hours, after which the second Pell and loan disbursements can be made.

The student is eligible for a new loan and a new Pell Grant once the student has successfully completed 24 credit hours and 60 weeks. First academic year: 24 semester hours. Second academic year: 24 semester hours. New Pell Grant and loan award begin after student completes 24 semester hours and weeks in first academic year.

For both of the programs illustrated below, the school defines the academic year as 24 semester hours and 30 weeks of instructional time.

The first program is less than an academic year; the second program is a full academic year. Program 1: 16 semester hours and 20 weeks less than an academic year.

Program 2: 24 semester hours and 30 weeks one academic year. The first program is an academic year with a remaining portion less than half of an academic year; the second program is an academic year with a remaining portion greater than half of an academic year. Program 1: 30 semester hours and 30 weeks.

one academic year. remaining portion of program. There is a single payment period for the remaining portion of the program, since at least one of the measures hours and weeks in the remaining portion is half of an academic year or less.

Program 2: 40 semester hours and 50 weeks. There are two payment periods for the remaining portion of the program because BOTH the hours and weeks in the remaining portion are more than half of an academic year.

Although some schools offer clock-hour programs that are divided into terms for institutional purposes, for Title IV purposes all clock-hour programs are considered to be non-term programs. In a clock-hour program, you are allowed to count a limited number of excused absences when deciding whether the student has completed the hours in a payment period.

An excused absence may only be counted if the student is excused from hours that were actually scheduled, were missed, and do not have to be made up for the student to receive the degree or certificate for the program. For instance, a student in a program that has clock-hour payment periods might miss 20 clock hours and only have attended clock hours at the point where other students who did not miss any clock hours had received clock hours of instruction.

If your school has an excused absences policy, the 20 missed clock hours are considered excused, and this student could be paid the next disbursement.

The policy on excused absences of any state agency that licenses your school or otherwise legally authorizes your school to operate in the state; or. Program Type. Direct Loan.

The payment period is the period of time in which the student successfully completes:. For the remainder of a program equal to or less than half of an academic year, the payment period is the remainder of the program.

Clock-hour programs and non-term credit-hour programs. Except for FWS wages, FSA disbursements are made on a payment period basis as described below. Except when making late disbursements or retroactive payments for completed payment periods as discussed in Volume 4, Chapter 2 , you must disburse the Title IV funds during the payment period to which they apply.

Note: We do not cover the requirements for reporting disbursements through the Common Origination and Disbursement COD System or the rules for making early disbursements, late disbursements, or retroactive payments in this section.

For guidance on those topics, refer to Volume 4, Chapter 2. We also do not cover certain disbursement requirements that are specific to the FSA grant programs or the Direct Loan Program. For information on those requirements, see Volumes 6, 7, 8, and 9.

As noted earlier in the chapter, for the Pell Grant, TEACH Grant, and FSEOG programs the payment period is the academic term for a student enrolled in a credit-hour program that uses any type of academic term standard or nonstandard. For the Direct Loan Program, the payment period is the academic term only if the program uses standard terms or uses nonstandard terms that are substantially equal in length.

If the program uses nonstandard terms that are not substantially equal in length, a school must use the non-term-based rules for Direct Loan disbursement timing, as discussed in the next section below. Except as noted above for the Direct Loan Program, there is no requirement for a student who is enrolled in a credit-hour term program that is not a subscription-based program to successfully complete a certain amount of coursework in a payment period before they can receive a disbursement of Title IV funds in the next payment period.

A student who is enrolled in a credit-hour program without terms or in a clock-hour program must successfully complete both the credit or clock hours and the weeks of instructional time in a payment period before receiving a disbursement of Pell Grant, FSEOG, TEACH Grant or Direct Loan funds for the next payment period.

For the Direct Loan Program only, this same requirement applies to students who are enrolled in programs with nonstandard terms that are not substantially equal in length. The Pell Grant or TEACH Grant amount that a student is eligible to receive for a payment period in a clock-hour or non-term credit-hour program is based on the number of hours and weeks in the scheduled payment periods for the program that are established at the beginning of the program based on the program length as described earlier in this chapter.

In this circumstance, the Direct Loan annual loan limit for an undergraduate student must be prorated reduced. The principles described above are illustrated by the examples in Appendix A at the end of this chapter.

For guidance on calculating Pell Grant and TEACH Grant awards for clock-hour and non-term credit-hour programs, see Volume 7. For information on Direct Loan annual loan limit proration and annual loan limit progression in clock-hour and non-term credit-hour programs, see Volume 8.

If your school is unable to determine when a student has successfully completed half of the credit or clock hours in a program, academic year, or remainder of a program, the student is considered to have begun the second payment period of the program, academic year, or remainder of a program at the later of the date identified by your school that the student has successfully completed:.

half of the academic coursework in the program, academic year, or remainder of the program; or. half of the number of weeks of instructional time in the program, academic year, or remainder of the program.

For the first two subscription periods terms that a student attends in a subscription-based program, there is no requirement for the student to have completed a certain amount of coursework before receiving a disbursement of Title IV funds the same as in any other term-based program using credit hours.

However, to receive a disbursement of Title IV aid for each subsequent subscription period in the program, the student must have completed a cumulative number of credit hours equal to the total of the number of hours for which the student was enrolled in all previously attended subscription periods in the program, excluding the number of hours for which the student was enrolled in the most recently attended subscription period.

For more detailed guidance on the disbursement rules for subscription-based programs, including examples, refer to Appendix B at the end of this chapter. This gives schools the ability to apportion the payment if doing so will be in the best interest of the student. For example, if a payment period is particularly long, a school might choose to pay in multiple installments to the extent program requirements permit to ensure that a student will have funds to pay rent later in the payment period.

If a school chooses to schedule multiple Direct Loan disbursements within a single payment period, the disbursements must be substantially equal. Note also that if the loan period for a Direct Loan is a single payment period, the loan must be disbursed in at least two installments unless the school qualifies for an exception to the multiple disbursement requirement.

See Volume 8 for more information. Schools that use payment periods as the basis for their Return of Title IV Funds calculations should note that making multiple disbursements within a payment period does not create a new or additional payment period.

See Volume 5 of the FSA Handbook for information on how withdrawal calculations handle multiple disbursements. For example, the earliest the school can pay a student who is scheduled to begin attendance in the second of three 5-week modules that make up a semester is 10 days before the first day of the second module or 30 days after the second module begins, if the student is a first-time, first-year borrower and the school does not meet the requirements for an exemption from the delayed disbursement requirement for such students, as described in Volume 4.

A student enrolls in a 1-year clock-hour program with an academic year AY of clock hours and 26 weeks of instructional time. The program consists of six successive graded courses, each of which has clock hours.

The scheduled payment periods are one-half of the length of the program in clock hours and weeks of instructional time: clock hours and 13 weeks of instructional time. The student in this example fails the second course, but immediately repeats it and passes.

The student successfully completes all of the other courses in the program. The school cannot make the second Pell and Direct Loan disbursements until the student has successfully completed both the clock hours and the weeks of instructional time in the first payment period.

Because the student has to repeat the second course of the program taking an additional three weeks to do so , the school must reschedule the date of the second Pell and Direct Loan disbursements. The second disbursements will now be made after the student has successfully completed clock hours and attended for 16 weeks of instructional time, and the school will need to report the rescheduled second disbursement dates to COD.

Progression through payment periods for disbursements student cannot receive next disbursement until successful completion of BOTH hours and weeks in scheduled payment periods. A non-term, two-year program of 48 semester hours and 60 weeks of instructional time has an academic year of 24 semester hours and 30 weeks of instructional time.

There are four scheduled payment periods, each of which is equal to one-half of the defined academic year: 12 semester hours and 15 weeks of instructional time. Students in the program are expected to complete the first 24 hours over 36 weeks of instructional time, and the final 24 semester hours in 24 weeks of instructional time.

Students complete each of hours and in 18 weeks of instructional time and each of hours of and in 12 weeks of instructional time. First year of program. Second year of program. The scheduled payment periods are 12 semester hours and 15 weeks of instructional time, but the student in this example takes 18 weeks to complete the first 12 hours.

Therefore, the second disbursements of the first Pell Grant award and the Direct Loan for the first academic year of the program cannot be made until the 19th week of instruction.

This is because the next grant or loan disbursement cannot begin until the student successfully completes BOTH the credit or clock-hours and the weeks of instruction in the previous scheduled payment period.

It takes the student another 18 weeks to complete the second 12 hours in the program, meaning that the first disbursements of the second Pell Grant award and the Direct Loan for the second academic year of the program cannot be made until the 37th week of instruction corresponds to when the student officially enters the 3rd scheduled payment period.

Based on the scheduled payment periods a student cannot enter the 4th payment period until the student has completed at least 45 weeks and 36 semester hours 12 semester hours and 15 weeks within each payment period. After the student has successfully completed 36 weeks of instruction and 24 semester hours, there are 24 weeks and 24 hours remaining in the program.

The second disbursements of the second Pell Grant award and the Direct Loan for the second academic year of the program cannot be made until the student officially enters the 4th scheduled payment period, which occurs after the student has cumulatively completed 36 semester hours and 48 weeks.

Remember that the Pell Grant amount the student is eligible to receive in each of the four payment periods is always based on the scheduled payment periods of 12 semester hours and 15 weeks of instructional time. Although the academic year for the program is defined as 24 semester hours and 30 weeks of instructional time, students are expected to complete the first 24 hours over 36 weeks of instructional time.

The Direct Loan for the second academic year of the program will be originated for a loan period covering 24 weeks of instructional time. Therefore, proration of the Direct Loan annual loan limit is not required.

A school offers a non-term, two-year program of 48 semester hours and 60 weeks of instructional time, with the academic year defined as 24 semester hours and 30 weeks of instructional time.

Students are expected to complete the first 30 semester hours over 30 weeks of instructional time in the first period of enrollment.

They are then expected to complete 18 semester hours in the last 30 weeks of instructional time. The scheduled payment periods are 12 semester hours and 15 weeks of instructional time. The second disbursements of the first Pell Grant award and the Direct Loan for the first academic year of the program are made after the student has successfully completed BOTH the hours and weeks components of the first scheduled payment period.

In this example, the student has earned 15 hours after completing the weeks in the first scheduled payment period.

The student then earns another 15 hours after completing the 15 weeks in the second scheduled payment period. After the student has successfully completed 30 weeks of instruction and 30 semester hours, there are 30 weeks and 18 hours remaining in the program.

The first disbursements of the second Pell Grant award and the Direct Loan for the second academic year of the program cannot be made until the 31st week of instruction corresponds to when the student officially enters the 3rd scheduled payment period.

The second disbursements of the second Pell Grant award and the Direct Loan for the second academic year of the program cannot be made until the student officially enters the 4th scheduled payment period, which occurs after the student has cumulatively completed 39 semester hours and 45 weeks.

As in Example 9, remember that the Pell Grant amount the student is eligible to receive in each of the four payment periods is always based on the scheduled payment periods of 12 semester hours and 15 weeks of instructional time.

Therefore, the Direct Loan annual loan limit for the second year of the program the maximum Direct Loan amount the student may receive for the 3rd and 4th payment periods must be prorated. However, to receive a disbursement for the third subscription period and for each subsequent subscription period in the program, a student must have completed a cumulative number of credit hours equal to the total number of hours for which the student was enrolled in all previously attended subscription periods in the program, excluding the number of hours for which the student was enrolled in the most recently attended subscription period.

The cumulative number of hours that a student must have completed to receive a disbursement for the third subscription period and for each subsequent subscription period is based on the student's enrollment status for the program. Each subscription period that a student attends is associated with a number of credit hours based on the student's enrollment status.

For example, if the program is a full-time program and the school's full-time standard is 12 semester or quarter hours, each subscription period will be associated with 12 hours. As a student progresses through a subscription-based program, the number of hours associated with each term are added to the cumulative total needed for the student to receive a disbursement.

For the first two terms in a subscription-based program, a school can make a disbursement of FSA funds up to 10 days before the beginning of the subscription period. Beginning with the third subscription period, early disbursement 10 days before the beginning of the term is allowed only if at that point the student has completed the required number of credit hours to receive a disbursement for the term.

Otherwise, the school cannot make a disbursement until the student has met the coursework completion requirement. Note that a student who has not begun attendance in any new coursework during a particular subscription period is ineligible to receive Title IV program funds for that period, even if the student would otherwise qualify to receive a disbursement based on coursework completion requirements.

This means, for example, that although there is no coursework completion requirement for a student to receive a disbursement for the second term of a subscription-based program, the student would not be eligible for the disbursement if they simply continue attendance in coursework that they began during the first subscription period without having begun attendance in any new coursework during the second subscription period.

If a disbursement is made to a student who did not begin attendance in any new coursework during a subscription period, the requirements described under "When a Student Fails to Begin Attendance" in Volume 4, Chapter 3 of the FSA Handbook would apply.

Once the cumulative number of credit hours from earlier subscription periods that is required to receive a disbursement for a later subscription period equals or exceeds the total number of credit hours required to complete the program, a student is no longer eligible to receive FSA funds for the program.

A school offers a two-year subscription-based program of consisting of 48 semester hours, with the academic year defined as 24 semester hours and 30 weeks of instructional time. The academic year consists of fall and spring semesters, with an optional summer term.

In this example, the student does not attend in the summer term. The school defines full-time as 12 semester hours per term. The student is enrolled in the full-time version of the program and does not change enrollment status. First Academic Year. Subscription period 1: Fall.

Subscription period 2: Spring. Credit hours associated with term: As shown above, there is no coursework completion requirement for the student to receive a Title IV disbursement for the first and second subscription periods in the program.

Subscription period 3: Fall. Subscription period 4: Spring. enrolled in subscription period 1. To receive a disbursement for subscription period 3, the student must have completed a cumulative number of credit hours equal to the total number of credit hours for which the student was enrolled in all previously attended terms, excluding the number of hours for which the student was enrolled in the most recently attended term.

Thus, the student cannot receive a disbursement for subscription period 3 until they have completed a total of 12 credit hours, the number of hours enrolled in subscription period 1. The 12 hours for which the student was enrolled in the most recently attended term subscription period 2 are not counted.

To receive a disbursement for subscription period 4, the student must have completed 24 credit hours, the cumulative number of hours enrolled in subscription periods 1 and 2. If the student has not completed the 48 hours in the program by the end of subscription period 4, they could receive FSA funds for one additional term, as shown below.

Subscription period 5: Fall. Subscription period 6: Spring. To receive a disbursement for subscription period 5, the student must have completed 36 credit hours, the cumulative number of hours enrolled in subscription periods 1, 2, and 3.

The student is not eligible to receive any additional FSA funds after subscription period 5, because the cumulative number of hours required to receive a disbursement for the next subscription period would be 48, which is the total number of hours in the program.

The scenario in this example is the same as in Example 11, except that the student changes to the half-time version of the program in the second academic year.

As in Example 11, there is no coursework completion requirement for the student to receive a Title IV disbursement for the first and second subscription periods in the program. Credit hours associated with term: 6. The student changes to the half-time version of the program in the second academic year.

Many Federal loans like the Stafford and the Direct PLUS are made in conjunction with participating external lenders. While these loans are guaranteed by the Federal government the external lender will handle all application, disbursement and repayment aspects of your loan.

Nelnet and ACS are also available as resources to help students secure a Federal student loan. What's particularly convenient with these services is you can apply for a loan online and find out whether or not you are pre-approved within minutes.

Most lending organizations offer this service and it saves you from having to physically go to the bank to submit each application. When applying for credit based loans don't let bad credit or no credit be an obstacle to your higher education.

Bad credit student loans can be found from a number of private lenders, you will just need to do some searching.

Bare in mind that these loans will have stricter terms and higher interest rates. If you can handle the interest rates and applicable fees you can still find a loan to make your college dream a reality.

After you've completed the application process and are accepted into the loan program, you will need to clarify the specifics of the loan. If you are getting a Federal loan the money will be sent directly to your school of choice to be set against the tuition balance.

Anything that is left over can be used for your other college expenses like books and dorm fees. If you have secured a private loan pay strict attention to the fine print. Some private lenders send your loan money straight the your college, much like a Federal loan, and you are restricted to borrowing only the amount you will need for each school term.

Other private lenders disburse the money directly to you and you are responsible for paying and managing your education related expenses. With many private loans you can borrow more than the total tuition and expenses for your college education, but always keep in mind you are required to pay this money back in a timely fashion.

Never agree to a loan that you do not believe you can handle financially. Student loans can be found and secured with the right information and a little determination.

Remember, for Federal loans get your FAFSA submitted well before the applicable deadlines or you will be caught out for the term and your only alternative will be a private lender loan. Private loans may be available to you at the last minute, but you will be faced with higher fees and interest rates.
