Tufts Loans: Undergraduate Students

Tufts Loans are need-based, institutional undergraduate loans which typically range from $500 to $2,500. Tufts Loans may be from the Farwell Fund, the National Distillers Fund, or the Warren Fund. The terms and conditions are the same. No fee or interest is charged, and no payments are due until 6 months after you graduate, withdraw from Tufts, or drop below half time status.

For loans disbursed before July 1, 2017, the interest rate is 7% with a 5 year repayment plan. For loan disbursed after July 1, 2017, the interest rate is 5% with a 5 year repayment plan.
