Veterans Administration Policy
Stanbridge University permits any covered individual to attend or participate in the course of education (after meeting admission requirements) during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to the educational institution a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33 (a “certificate of eligibility” can also include a “Statement of Benefits” obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) website – eBenefits, or a VAF 28-1905 form for chapter 31 authorization purposes) and ending on the earlier of the following dates:
- The date on which payment from VA is made to the institution.
- 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.
Stanbridge University will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under chapter 31 or 33.
Private Education Loans
Stanbridge University offers private loans to students through various lending institutions. Private loans, which are privately insured, cover educational expenses beyond what is covered by the federal direct loans. The student must be a U.S. Citizen, a U.S. National, or Permanent Resident and must be creditworthy. Students may be enrolled full- or half-time. If the student has no credit or a poor credit history, he/she may still qualify for a loan by applying with a creditworthy co-borrower.
- If Stanbridge University authorizes payments in an installment agreement, it is attached as an addendum to the enrollment agreement. If interest is charged, all terms and conditions comply with the Federal Truth In Lending Act requirements.
- After 30 days of delinquency on a student account, the student may be withdrawn from school and the refund policy will be applied. The student and/or financial sponsors agree to and are notified that the account may be turned over to a collection agency. The student and/or financial sponsors will be responsible for all costs associated with collections.
- Stanbridge University complies with the Federal Truth in Lending Act pursuant to Title 15 of the United States Code.
- (FTC) Notice: I may request that the initial disclosures prescribed in the Truth in Lending Act (15 United States Code §§ 1601 through 1666) be provided in Spanish before signing any loan documents.
