Some lenders offer alternative (private) loans as a means to fund your education. These loans are generally based on your credit history and can be used in addition to any federal, state, institutional, or private funding you receive. It is important to use all available resources and to file the FAFSA before applying for an alternative loan. Please be aware that final approval must be received from your bank before an alternative loan will be deducted from your bill. You may be eligible for Federal loans or grants which usually have much more favorable terms and conditions than Alternative loans.
Here are some Alternative Loan lenders who offer very competitive rates and benefits:
