Credit-Based Loans

After determining whether you qualify for government-sponsored student loans that generally offer more favorable terms, you may want to consider credit-based loans to help pay direct and indirect college expenses.

You and your family must apply for credit-based loans directly with lenders. Calculated financial eligibility is not required for approval, but applicants must meet credit and other eligibility requirements set by individual lenders. You may choose to borrow from any lender without penalty, whether or not that lender is listed here or in other University materials.

Before taking out any credit-based loan, we urge you and your family to compare information and terms carefully.
