Student Financial Aid can help you access a variety of federal, institutional, and private loan programs to help finance your education. Loans are available to undergraduate and graduate students, and each type of loan comes with different terms and conditions that SFA can help you understand before you choose which borrowing program is best for you.

Students enrolled in semesters prior to Summer 2022 can continue to view their prior loan history on the Penn Loan System. PLS will no longer be used for future loan applications.
