Private Scholarships

Seton Hill has a variety of scholarships available for students. It's also possible to find scholarships through civic clubs, high schools, school districts, companies where you or a family member are employed, churches, and a whole host of other organizations. 

Alternative Loans

Unlike other forms of aid, loans must be repaid.

Alternative loans help parents or students to cover college expenses that are not covered by other financial aid resources. Seton Hill's Financial Aid Office strongly suggests exhausting other loan options before looking into alternative loans. They are not subject to federal loan regulations like Stafford and PLUS loans. Interest rates, fees, and loan amounts are subject to your credit score and most students are required to have a cosigner to qualify. Seton Hill University does not recommend any particular lenders over any other lenders that currently offer alternative loan products. The Financial Aid Office will certify any loan that a student chooses. Lenders that have done business with Seton Hill University students in the last three years can be found through the option listed below. The total cost of attendance minus the student's total financial aid equals the maximum amount a student may borrow.


ELMSelect can give you a side-by-side comparison of general information for a variety of lenders. The information is not customized to each borrower, but you will be able to gather general information such as interest rate range. You do not have to choose any of the lenders that are listed on this site. Seton Hill University will certify a loan from any lender a student or parent chooses.
