Private Student Loans Edit
Private student loans provide additional funding after a borrower has maximized his or her federal loan eligibility.
Here are some factors you should consider when deciding if private student loans are right for you:Edit
- Have you exhausted all other sources of financial aid, including grants, scholarships, Work-Study, and federal student loans
- Do you have an established credit history or a creditworthy cosigner?
- Do you need to borrow money to cover school-related living expenses?
- Will you be attending school full- or part-time?
