Financial Aid

The Federal Financial Aid program gives loans to students to aid them in pursuing higher education.

Federal Financial Aid is an option to help those students who need additional assistance to further their education. Remember, Federal Financial Aid is not a scholarship, it is a loan that will have to be paid back. However, the FAFSA offers student loans with low interest rates and flexible repayment plans. Priority will be given to those people with the greatest need. Aid is administered in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations of the United States. These regulations are stated in the Oglala Lakota College catalog.

Apply for FAFSA

Financial Aid is also available at Oglala Lakota College in the form of Grants, Employment, and Scholarships. Due to the limited amount of funds available through these aid programs, full-time (12 credit hours or more), high-need students will be given priority.

Private Student Loans

Oglala Lakota College does not participate in Federal Loan Programs besides the FAFSA mentioned above.

However, students may take out additional school loans from a personal bank lender. It is important to keep in mind personal loans typically have higher interest rates than traditional student loans, and may be harder to pay off in the future.

To explore private student loan opportunities that may be available, Oglala Lakota College encourages students to reach out to their private banking lender or speak to a qualified financial advisor.
