What is a private loan?

A private loan is an option to cover your educational costs after federal loans.

A private loan is a non-federal loan issued by a lender such as a bank or credit union. 

A private loan requires a credit check of the student borrower and co-borrower.

A private loan is a viable option to cover direct costs but is generally more expensive than federal loans with terms varying by lender and loan product.



Exercise caution when selecting a lender and loan product.

Contact your selected lender for technical or processing difficulty.
