LOAN APPLICATION PROCESS
The application period for Fall 2021 semester will be from July 7th, 2021 to August 24th, 2021. All decisions will be made before the semester start date.
Upon requesting the loan application and consent forms, Delta emails you and your co-signer an electronic application and charges you a non-refundable $100 application fee. Once all the paperwork and fees are received, you shall receive an email from TuitionFlex to complete an online information sheet for preapproval. Once you are preapproved, you will have to pay an addtional origination fee of $100 per loan, which you shall be invoiced seperately. Once this payment is received, your loan application will be deemed complete and your loan servincing date shall be the beginning date of the semester which you have chosen to join.
During the application process, you and your co-signer are provided with various disclosures regarding costs and fees and given the opportunity to reconsider proceeding with the loan.
Saint James School of Medicine’s Finance Department is happy to answer any questions you may have about the loan application process. Just submit a ticket to Financial Helpdesk. For questions once the loan has been approved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 877-354-2629 (8 am to 5 pm CST)
