The Technion is fully approved by the United States Department of Education, for participation in federal student loans for American citizens and permanent residents. U.S. students may receive up to $20,500 in federal Stafford Student Loans (Stafford Loans) annually, and the balance of the cost of Attendance (COA) can be taken in Federal Graduate PLUS loans. These funds are designed to make low interest loans available to students to help them meet their educational expenses. Eligible students may also apply for alternative (private) loans up to the amount of annual tuition and living expenses.
