I have 92 credit hours at my current school. The nursing school is transferring only 72 of them. I wonder will they still give me FA.
Here is info about student loans limits published by www.finaid.org
Stafford Loans allow dependent undergraduates to borrow up to $2,625 their freshman year, $3,500 their sophomore year and $5,500 for each remaining year (independent students and students whose parents have been turned down for a PLUS loan can borrow an additional unsubsidized $4,000 the first two years and $5,000 the remaining years). Graduate students can borrow $18,500 per year, although only $8,500 of that is subsidized. There are also cumulative limits of $23,000 for an undergraduate education and a $65,500 combined limit for undergraduate and graduate. (For independent students and for students whose parents were denied a PLUS loan the cumulative limits are $46,000 and $138,500, respectively.)
The amount of Perkins Loan you receive is determined by your school's financial aid office. The program limits are $4,000 per year for undergraduate students and $6,000 per year for graduate students, with cumulative limits of $20,000 for undergraduate loans and $40,000 for undergraduate and graduate loans combined.
Institutions participating in the Expanded Lending Option (ELO) may offer higher loan limits for the Perkins Loan. To participate in the ELO, a school must have a default rate no higher than 15%. The annual loan limits are increased by $1,000 each and the cumulative limits increased by $5,000 and $10,000, respectively.
So that covers the federal student loans, I am pretty sure that student loans from private organizations do not have limits, or if they do they are pretty high. Hope this info helps.
