Amberton University encourages all students to research tuition assistance options available through their employers, third parties, and availablie military benefits prior to committing to additional financial debt through educational loans. We recommend students reach out their employer's benefits department or their military Education Services Officer (ESO) and inquire about tuition assistance/benefit options.
Title IV Funds
Amberton University is certified under Title IV to participate in the Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loan programs for all undergraduate and graduate degree programs. For more information on Title IV eligibility, please visit the Federal Student Aid website, speak to a Student Advisor at (972) 279-6511 option # 4, or email FinAid@Amberton.edu. Information on how to apply for Title IV financial aid, eligibility requirements, and policies and procedures related to financial aid are also available in the University's Financial Aid Handbook.
Private Education Loans
While the University participates in Federal Direct Loan programs, we realize that unforeseen financial circumstances occur that may temporarily disrupt students’ educational benefits. 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.
Sallie Mae® Smart Option Student Loan®
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.
Discover Student Loans
Discover Student Loans can help students cover up to 100% of school expenses not covered by their financial aid package. Discover loans are private, credit-based, school-certified funds, open to undergraduate and graduate students.

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.
