Private student loans are non-federal loans, made by a lender such as a bank, credit union or state agency. These loans may have variable or fixed interest rates based upon the student's credit history and other lender specific program information. Prior to applying for a private loan, applicants should review their credit report for discrepancies, as credit history will help determine their eligibility and interest rate.
Most lenders offer the option of obtaining a co-signer for private student loans. Please note that the University cannot act as a co-signer or sponsor for either domestic or international students.
