Private Loans for Continuing Education Courses

The University of North Florida can certify private loans for certain non-credit courses offered through the UNF Division of Continuing Education (DCE). Private Loans, offered by banks and financial institutions, are based on your credit profile. The student and/or co-signer must be creditworthy as determined by the lender. Eligibility criteria may vary per lender. The loan application process with the lender must be completed before UNF can certify and award the loan.

This form notifies the DCE staff that you wish to enroll and pay for a DCE course using a private loan. Please download the form below and review the steps.
