Financial Assistance for Graduating Students

  • Exit Counseling - Federal regulations indicate that any student who has received a federal loan while in attendance at UMB must complete exit counseling before leaving the University.
  • Loan Consolidation - Through loan consolidation, a borrower may be allowed to combine all, or a portion of, existing federal student loans into one loan. 
  • Public Service Loan Forgiveness - Public Service Loan Forgiveness is a federal program through which borrowers can apply to have their Federal Direct Loans forgiven after meeting certain requirements.
  • Pay As You Earn (ICR-A) - The Pay As You Earn federal student loan repayment plan, also known as “ICR-A,” functions similarly to the existing Income-Based Repayment plan (IBR) by using factors such as income and family size to determine a borrower’s required monthly payment.
  • Saving on Valuable Education (SAVE) Plan - The new Saving on Valuable Education (SAVE) Plan is a rebranding of the existing REPAYE program and will provide the lowest monthly payments of any IDR plan available to nearly all student borrowers.
  • National Health Service Corps - The National Health Service Corps builds healthy communities by supporting qualified health care providers dedicated to working in areas of the United States with limited access to care. The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) awards scholarships and loan repayment to primary care providers in eligible disciplines.
