Sallie Mae® Smart Option Student Loan®

While the University does not participate in any type of Federal Direct Loan programs, we realize that unforeseen financial circumstances occur that may temporarily disrupt students’ educational plans. For this reason, Amberton University has agreement(s) with loan providers who offer private loans for educational expenses. These loans are not federally-funded and are designed to assist approved students with payment of tuition, fees, and textbooks. They are not designed to provide income for day-to-day living expenses normally covered by the working adult’s employment income.

The Sallie Mae® Smart Option Student Loan® is a private, credit-based, school-certified student loan for student borrowers enrolled at least half time. With this loan, qualified students may be eligible to borrow up to the full cost of their education as certified by the University.

Students applying for a private education loan must complete the Amberton University Private Education Loan Worksheet and return it to the University prior to applying for the loan.
