|Lends to international students?||Yes, with US cosigner||Yes (no cosigner required); except citizens of OFAC sanctioned countries||Yes, with US cosigner. DACA students are eligible.||Yes, with US cosigner||Yes, with US cosigner|
Once you have contacted a lender and been pre-approved for a loan,, please fill out the Private Loan Information Form to notify our office — this will allow us to add the loan to your financial aid so that you do not end up with a financial hold. For international students, this also allows you to use the loan as part of your visa certification.
Please note that non-degree students and students in less than half time programs may not be eligible for in-school deferment.
We encourage all prospective borrowers to review all their options and consider the following: credit requirements, interest rate terms (ie: fixed or variable), fees, repayment incentives for the borrower, total cost, deferment and forbearance options, repayment timelines and flexibility.
