Financial Aid for Winter Session Classes

William Paterson University students
William Paterson University students may use alternative loans to finance the Winter Session. Please note that these loans are based on credit worthiness and may not afford the same benefits as Federal Direct Student loans. WPU students must exhaust all Federal Direct Student loans prior to applying for alternative loans. To determine if you have any remaining Federal Direct Loan eligibility, please email us at

To apply for an Alternative (Private) Student Loan, please visit this website at

For WPU students (Please read): If you have financial aid awards for the Spring 2018 semester and your student account shows a credit balance, please note that you cannot use your "future" financial aid credit for a current term. Therefore, the credit cannot be applied towards your winter term bill.
