A Health Professions Student Loan (HPSL) is a subsidized low-interest loan limited on the UC Berkeley campus to Optometry students. To be considered for an HPSL, Optometry students need to include parent information on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), regardless of their independent status for all other programs.
Although the loan is made with government funds, Berkeley contributes a share and is your institutional lender; hence, you repay this loan to Berkeley. Beginning in mid-August 2017, the servicer of your loan will be ECSI.
From grants to scholarships to loans to work-study and beyond, we offer a wide range of financial aid programs designed to keep a world-class Berkeley education affordable.
