Continuing Education Loans
Find out more about how to find loans to fund your continuing adult education
With continuous advancements in technology and recent shifts in the job market, the demand for continuing education and career training for adults has perhaps never been stronger. The U.S. Department of Education estimates that nearly 90 million Americans engage in some form of formal adult education each year, and it also notes that four college students in ten are currently 25 years of age or older.
If you're one of those nontraditional-aged students who is trying to figure out how to finance your next degree— the good news is that adult student loans are available.
Know your continuing education student loan options
Your leading option, if you are attending school at least half-time, will probably be the Federal Direct PLUS Loan.
- No set limits on borrowing—you can borrow up to the full cost of attendance, minus any other financial aid you receive
- Fixed interest rate over the entire life of the loan
- Current employment is not mandatory
Another option for continuing education students who are enrolled at least half-time in a degree granting program is our Citizens Bank TruFit Student Loan®. This private loan option offers choice of repayment and an interest rate reduction for automatic payment deduction from any eligible Citizens Bank account.
