Private student loans are non-federal loans, made by a lender such as a bank, credit union or state agency. They have variable or fixed interest rates based upon the student's credit score. For credit report resources and information, please click here.
Most lenders offer the option of obtaining a co-signer for the student loan. Please note that the University cannot act as a co-signer or sponsor for either domestic or international students.
New York University does not prefer, recommend, promote, endorse, or suggest any lenders. You are not required to borrow from any of the lenders appearing on our site and there is no penalty for selecting a different lender, if you prefer.
