International Student Loans

Varies

Additional Information







Students will be required to complete the compare student loans box for a list of available student loans.  All international students must have a US co-signer in order to apply for a student loan. A co-signer is legally obligated to repay the loan if the borrower fails to pay. Often times, the cosigner is a close friend or relative that can assist in getting credit since most international students cannot receive credit on their own. That co-signer must be a US citizen or permanent resident, with good credit, who has lived in the US for the past two years.
