International Students

We are pleased to present the following list of lenders who have expressed an active interest in lending to NYU Stern students. The list below includes private lenders that provide education loans specifically to international 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. We encourage you to compare information among these and other available student loan providers. Individual lenders will, at their discretion, evaluate credit history. You may find more favorable loan terms and conditions by applying instead for a U.S. domestic private loan with a creditworthy U.S. co-signer. Keep in mind that for some co-signer loans, a student must have a social security number in addition to having an endorser. For application information and details about terms and conditions, please visit the lender's website or contact the sponsor's customer service phone number. Please note that application fees are not refundable. Typical processing time is 3-4 weeks, but may be longer. Please plan accordingly.

For visa purposes, you should not include potential merit-based scholarships or private student loans as sources of funding. For further details, click here.

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

Without a U.S. co-signer:
