Nursing Loan

In order to be considered for the nursing loan, you must have completed 30 credits.

The nursing loan is a need-based loan for students pursuing a degree in nursing. This particular loan has a fixed interest rate of 5%. Repayment begins nine months after graduation, dropping below half-time enrollment status, or dropping out of the nursing major. The nursing loan is to be repaid directly to UW Oshkosh. To be considered for the loan, students must file the FAFSA. The nursing loan will not be disbursed to a student unless both the entrance loan counseling and the MPN are completed. Students must complete a new MPN every year they receive a new nursing loan. 

For more information about this loan, contact the Student Loan Office at collections@uwosh.edu or call (920) 424-1336.

 

Regulatory Information for Nursing Loan Recipients

Regulation Z (Truth in Lending)

On July 30, 2009, the Federal Reserve approved final amendments to Regulation Z (Truth in Lending) that revise the disclosure requirements for private education loans. The amendments implement provisions of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) enacted in August 2008. Under the amendments, creditors that extend private education loans must provide disclosures about loan terms and features on or with the loan application and must also disclose information about federal student loan programs that may offer less costly alternatives. Additional disclosures must be provided when the loan is approved and when the loan is consummated. The rules became effective on Sept. 14, 2009 and lenders are required to be in compliance for any new loans after Feb. 14, 2010.

Regulation Z (Truth in Lending) applies to all private education loans and certain educational loans offered by UW Oshkosh, including the nursing loan. Prior to lending, the Financial Aid Office is required to present recipients with the Application/Solicitation Disclosure Statement. This disclosure describes the general terms of the loan and the estimated amount that you will repay over the life of the loan. It also provides with information regarding the potential availability of lower-cost federal loan options.

Subsequent disclosures, as well as a self-certification form, will be presented to recipients electronically after signing the loan promissory note with the University’s nursing loan servicer, ECSI.
