Patrick Henry College is neutral in regard to student borrowing to pay for educational expenses. The College recognizes that this is a personal decision that must be made by each student and his family. Financial aid requests from families with strong convictions against debt will be assessed on the same basis as families without similar convictions.
Because the College is recognized by the Department of Education as an eligible institution, PHC families are eligible to take advantage of student loans. To take advantage of these benefits, please be sure to use the College’s OPE ID number 039513-00.
College Ave takes the stress out of paying for college by creating a student loan that fits your budget and your goals. Offering zero-fee private student loans, College Ave helps students pay for college.
As a matter of institutional conviction, the College is governed by its Board of Trustees according to its Fundamental Statements and will not accept any funding, private or governmental, which dictates terms that supersede the Board’s authority or conflict with these Fundamental Statements. As a result, the College will not accept any governmental funding including U.S. Department of Education (Title IV) funding including their loan programs, state funding, ROTC scholarships or the G.I. Bill.
