The Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) is dedicated to helping our alumni and students manage the debt they incur while students at Midwestern University. Loan repayment is the single most important financial issue our alumni and students generally face. Information about exit counseling, financial literacy, loan repayment options, and other information is described in detail in an effort to help you become an informed borrower.
For many alumni, educational loans were a necessary part of the process of paying for school. In addition, it is very important to understand the basics of each loan program offered at Midwestern University. You can read about the loan programs below and we encourage you to contact the Office of Student Financial Services if you have any questions.
The Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) knows it's important for alumni to repay their loans as quickly and inexpensively as possible and we are here to help. We look forward to working with you now and in the future.

Federal Family Education (FFEL) Program Borrowers:
On July 1, 2010, the Federal government eliminated the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) program. All student loans are now originated through the Federal Direct Loan program starting with the 2010-2011 academic year. Borrowers who have previously borrowed through a FFEL lender need to contact their lender or servicer for more information.
