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

The University has reviewed the information provided by every lender who submitted information and, based on the information submitted, identified the following loan products as having competitive rates, customer service, and borrower benefits. The availability of bar exam study borrowing was also considered.
- Federal Graduate PLUS Loan
- Discover Law Loans & Discover Bar Exam Loans
- PNC Solution Loan for Graduate Student & PNC Solution Loan for Bar Study
- Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan & Sallie Mae Bar Study Loan

You are not required to borrow from one of the lenders identified here or in other University materials. You may choose to borrow from any lender without penalty. We urge you to compare information concerning credit-based student loans carefully to determine the best fit for your particular circumstance.
