Students who are interested in purchasing a computer, but are concerned about the cost, should know that it may be possible to use financial aid funds to cover such a purchase. Students receiving federal or private loans may use a portion of those funds t o cover the cost of a computer. If you are planning to use your loan funds to cover your tuition and living costs, it may be possible for you to borrow additional loan funds for the purchase of a computer. The amount available to borrow will be based on each studentís individual financial aid package; but, in almost all cases, the additional loan funds will be in the form of a private loan. Eligibility for a private loan is based, in part, on a studentís cr edit history. Students with poor or negative credit may have difficulty in securing private loan funds. If you feel that you may not qualify for a private loan, it is recommended that you ascertain your eligibility before purchasing a computer. All requests to borrow additional loan funds to cover the costs of a computer are subject to limits and must be approved by the Law School Financial Aid Office. Please retain a copy of your receipts. You should contact the Financial Aid Office at 215-204- 8943 for more information.
