Loans
The Boston Architectural College’s two year cohort default rate on Direct Loans is 7.1% which is below the national average of 9.1%.

Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Loan
Need-based loan awarded to undergraduate students with financial need, as determined by the FAFSA. The interest on the Subsidized Stafford Loan is paid for by the U.S. Government while a student is enrolled at least part-time in a degree-granting program.

Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
Awarded to undergraduate and graduate students. Interest on the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan accrues regardless of a student’s enrollment in a degree-bearing program. The accrued interest is added to the principal balance if the student chooses not to pay it on a monthly basis.

Learn More

Federal Direct PLUS Loans
Available to parents of dependent students, as well as graduate students. Approval of the Federal Direct PLUS Loans is based on the borrower’s credit. The Federal Direct PLUS loan is an unsubsidized loan, therefore interest will start accruing once the first disbursement is made onto the students account.

Grants
Federal Pell Grant
The Pell Grant provides awards to eligible undergraduate students with the greatest financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Eligible students who are less than full-time may be able to receive a prorated Federal Pell Grant based on their enrollment. Learn more

Eligible students can receive VA benefits for all BAC undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs. The BAC also participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Private Educational Loans
Private loans are available to assist students with their educational expenses after federal and/or state financial aid. Eligibility for a private loan is based on the private lender’s criteria. In most cases, a co-signer is required. The interest rate and repayment options vary according to the lender. Students do not have to complete a FAFSA to apply for private loans, but we recommend applying for federal and/or state financial aid first. Suggested lenders and information can be found on ELM Select. Students are not limited to the suggested lenders and can use any lender of the student’s choice.
