Private Loans

A variety of organizations and institutions provide private loans to international students. Many provide assistance that is targeted to students from specific regions or countries and who meet certain criteria.

It is important to become familiar with the most common provisions of international student loans, and the language used to describe them. For example, international student loans require a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (Green card holder) as a co-signer. The loans are credit-based, meaning the co-signer must have a good credit history, good employment history (or other income history if the co-signer does not work), and must have lived in the United States for the past two years.
