Welcome to International Business College

Consumer Information

At International Business College, we want you to make an informed decision to attend our school. Many government agencies mandate that colleges provide various types of consumer information to the students, prospective students, and (in some cases) the general public. We take pride in providing you not only the information required by federal and state laws, but also additional useful information and disclosures on various aspects of our school. Therefore, we have gathered this material by category into a number of detailed web pages that are linked below. Of course, if you need more information or explanations, our staff is ready to help. Please contact the appropriate campus office or School Director’s Office for assistance with any of this information.

Student and Parent Loans

It may be necessary to borrow money in order to attend International Business College. Federal loans are available to both students and some parents of dependent students. Loans must be paid back with interest. Interest rates will vary depending upon the type of federal loan. International Business College participates in the following federal loan programs.

Federal Direct Stafford Loans

A student attending at least half-time may apply for a Federal Direct Stafford Loan. There are two types of programs; the first is the Direct Subsidized Stafford Loan. You must show financial need for this loan. The financial aid office will determine your eligibility. You are not charged Interest on this type of loan while you are enrolled in college at least half-time.

The second type is the Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. You do not have to show financial need for this loan. Like the Subsidized Loan, the financial aid office will determine your eligibility. Interest will accrue while you are in school.

All Federal Stafford Loan funds are electronically sent via EFT (electronic funds transfer) directly to your student account.

Requirements (for a first-time borrower):

  • You must sign a Master Promissory Note (MPN) at http://www.studentloans.gov/.
  • You must complete on-line entrance counseling at http://www.studentloans.gov/. This interactive on-line process is designed to educate the student about Stafford loans and his/her rights and responsibilities under the loan program.

Repayment

  • Interest will begin to accrue after the first disbursement for an Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, and after leaving school for a Subsidized Stafford Loan.
  • Upon leaving school, a student is required to complete exit counseling at http://www.studentloans.gov/. This interactive on-line process is designed to remind the student of his/her repayment options and responsibilities.
