Astrive Student Loans are designed to supplement other types of school financing, and often cover educational expenses not normally addressed within scholarship or federal grant/loan programs. This means that tuition, room and board, lab fees, computers, traveling expenses to and from home over breaks, and studying abroad can now be considered legitimate educational expenses.
Terms on the Astrive loan are designed to become due 180 days after either graduation or after terminating the education process for any reason. Post-graduate work will delay repayment until such time as the degree is completed. Students may choose to pay interest payments during the loan term, thereby deferring some of the accumulated costs of the loan.
