Sallie Mae Loans

Sallie Mae® is the nation’s leading provider of saving, planning and paying for education programs. Since its founding more than 35 years ago, the company has invested in more than 31 million people to help them realize their dreams of higher education.

To help students finance Vocational Certificate programs, Sessions College is approved for a Smart Option Student Loan with Sallie Mae. The innovative Smart Option Student Loan helps you save money, build your credit, and pay off your student loan faster.

The plan enables students to borrow money to cover tuition, materials, and program fees. The loan offers three repayment options:

  • Deferred until after graduation
  • Full interest payments while in school
  • $25/month fixed payments while in school.

Interest rates vary depending on your choice of repayment options.

Important Notes

Your loan payments will be based on your individual circumstances and qualifications. Contact an Admissions Advisor to help you determine your likely eligibility and payment terms with Sallie Mae.

When you apply, the first question you will be asked is in which state your school is located. You must list “Arizona” (the location of the Sessions College campus) rather than the state in which you are located. If you have questions while you are applying, call Sallie Mae at 1-800-695-3317.
