As a Title IV participating school, Westminster Seminary California students are eligible for Federal Stafford Loans. Through the Stafford Loan program, students may borrow up to $20,500 per year to fund their educational costs (tuition, fees and most living expenses). Each Stafford loan has a fixed interest rate. Repayment is deferred during full and half-time enrollment and for six months after graduation. Students who drop below half-time enrollment status will have a six month grace period before repayment begins. To be eligible for assistance through the Federal Stafford Student Loan program, students must be enrolled at least half-time (registered for 6 or more academic credits per semester).
