  • A loan is a debt that must be repaid. Borrow responsibly and live simply. Manage your money carefully and stay within budget while attending school to minimize your debt. Loan funds are for educational related expenses only. For money management tips, visit Money Management International.
  • Your loan grace period will begin when you drop below half-time status (6 hours) or withdraw from HSU. You must complete Loan Exit Counseling at NLSDS upon graduating, withdrawing from the university or dropping below half-time enrollment.
  • There are  annual and lifetime maximums based on your classification and dependency status. You should know how much you owe at all times. Loans are awarded at annual maximums. If you plan to attend summer school, reduce your fall and spring loans. Visit the financial aid office for more information.
  • Keep your address, telephone number and name updated at HSU Registrar's Office, located in Womack 210B. Our system uses the permanent address on file with the Registrar, please make sure it is up to date.

Ali Brown is biology major and dance minor from Atlanta, Texas who plans to attend medical school after finishing her bachelor’s of science degree at Henderson. To some, this might seem odd, but she explains, “I love science and dancing allows me to study the movement of the body and also be artistic which to me, is something that everyone should venture out and experience.”
“I am going to medical school because I've always had an interest in the body and in health. Being a doctor will allow me to have a job where I will be able to love what I do.”
