Student Loans for Marquette Students

About Marquette University

student loansOne of the leading and largest Jesuit universities in the country, Marquette is a leading force in Wisconsin’s higher education realm, as well as a national athletic powerhouse. Founded in 1881, Marquette became the first coed Catholic university in the world in 1909 when it admitted its first class of female undergraduates. Constantly recognized for the prowess of its Golden Eagles, Marquette displays enviable qualities not only in athletic circles, but is also constantly recognized for driving and promoting social good, a characteristic attributable to its Jesuit culture.

After all the usual expenses, like tuition, room and board, travel, and textbooks, there are some other things you need to consider when putting together a budget for a year at school when you’re on Marquette University Financial Aid. Basketball is extremely popular on campus, so remember to allocate some cash for student tickets: for 2011-2012, a student package with tickets to all 16 home games costs $110. That doesn’t include what you’ll most likely spend on pizzas and/or beers at The Annex, though; so give yourself a little spending room there too.

Financial Aid Packages

financial aidLike most schools, Marquette University financial aid packages consist of a mix of university grants, scholarships (both of which may be either need- or merit-based), and student loans. While the Marquette financial aid office is very helpful in aiding students, many students require federal student loans to help pay for Marquette, and still others take out private student loans in addition to federal aid and anything received through Marquette financial aid packages.

Students who need financial assistance to supplement their Marquette University financial aid award should exhaust all free money and federal aid opportunities before turning towards private student loans. If you still need money for college after exhausting these forms of aid, you can use our private student loan comparison tool on the top of this page to search, compare, and apply for private student loans for Marquette.
