Private Educational Loans
These loans should be considered if additional funds are needed. Also click here for a comparison sheet for Parent Plus loan versus Private loans. It is recommended that students apply for a private loan with a co-signer. A co-signer assumes responsibility for a loan should the borrower fail to repay. Having a co-signer on the loan often results in a lower interest rate. Please see the information on the Qualities of a Good Co-signer to help you choose a co-signer prior to applying for a loan. Please click Private Loans for a listing of private lenders along with their information and to apply.
