Payment Options

Payment Options - Juniata College has partnered with Tuition Management Systems, a monthly payment plan provider. Families may choose to divide payments into even monthly installments (10 for new students, 12 for continuing) for easier budgeting.  The plan requires an annual enrollment fee of $65, but assesses no interest or finance charges.  Payment begins in July for new students, or May for continuing students.

Juniata College offers several methods of payment.  Click here for details.

Federal Loans

Student Lending Code of Conduct

The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program

There are two types of Direct Loans for students: subsidized and unsubsidized.  Subsidized loans are need-based and the interest that accrues on the loan is paid by the federal government during periods of enrollment.  Interest also accrues on the unsubsidized Direct Loans.  However, interest payments must be made or the interest will be capitalized (added to the loan amount).  New borrowers must complete an electronic Master Promissory Note and the online Entrance Counseling in order to receive the loan funds.  The following instructions will help you through the process.

        STUDENTS: (Federal Direct Loan)  Student's obligation to repay

  1. Go to https://studentloans.gov and create an account.
  2. Complete the Entrance Counseling before completing the Direct Loan MPN. (freshmen or first time borrowers only)
  3. Complete Master Promissory Note, making sure to choose Juniata College.

A parent may borrow up to the difference between the student's cost of attendance and the aid he or she may receive on an annual basis.  Borrowers have up to 10 years to repay the loan and the principal payments can be deferred while the student is enrolled.  If a parent is denied the PLUS loan for credit reasons, the student becomes eligible for an additional unsubsidized Direct Loan.  The additional amount is based on year in college.  Application instructions are below.

        PARENTS: (Federal PLUS Loan)  A parent's obligation to repay

  1. Go to https://studentloans.gov and create an account.
  2. Complete the PLUS application request, indicating how much you want to borrow for the academic year.
  3. Complete the PLUS Master Promissory Note, making sure to choose Juniata College.

Alternative Loans

Alternative loans are educational loans offered through a private lender.  The student is the borrower; however, a credit-worthy cosigner is required for approval.  Payments are usually deferred until after graduation or enrollment drops below half-time status.  A student may borrow up to the difference between the cost of education and the aid he or she receives for the academic year.
