Federally insured loan programs are administered by the Office of Financial Aid. Financial aid from federal, state and institutional resources should be considered as supplemental to personal resources and not as primary resources.
A student must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the Federal Student Aid Programs to determine financial need and apply for loans. The Federal Title IV School Code for Pepperdine University is 001264.
Pepperdine University began processing Federal Subsidized, Unsubsidized, and Graduate PLUS loans through the Federal Direct Loan Program beginning with the 2010-2011 academic year (Fall 2010). Direct Loans are borrowed and serviced directly through the federal government, rather than private lenders, which means that student borrowers do NOT have to select a lender/bank/credit union (loans borrowed prior to 2010-2011 will remain with their lenders).
