Domestic Students

Students should apply for all eligible federal aid available (by submitting the FAFSA) before considering a private, alternative loan. Terms, conditions, and eligibility requirements vary, and the borrower (and co-borrower, if applicable) should first compare information among these and other available student loan providers and apply for the one that best suits their needs. Individual lenders will, at their discretion, evaluate credit history. 

We are pleased to present the following alphabetical list of lenders who have expressed an active interest in lending to NYU Stern students. You are not required to borrow from any of the lenders listed below and there is no penalty for selecting a different lender, if you prefer. Such loans are for education purposes, which means you must be a registered student and the amount you can borrow cannot exceed your cost of attendance as listed on the Stern Graduate Financial Aid website. For application information and details about terms and conditions, please visit the lender's website or contact the sponsor's toll-free number. Please note that application fees are not refundable. Typical processing time is 3-4 weeks. Please plan accordingly.

Note: Effective February 14, 2010 all students must complete a Student Self-Certification Form when applying for private loans. Federal government regulations require that a lender obtain a self-certification signed by the loan applicant before disbursing a private education loan.

When applying, be sure to select the correct loan, specifying your status as a Stern graduate student (where applicable).
