Who is eligible to apply for international student loans?
- Students who are not U.S. citizens or non-citizen permanent residents and who are attending an eligible U.S. college or university.
- Borrowers are required to have a creditworthy cosigner who is a U.S. citizen or a non-citizen permanent resident. Students who are not U.S. citizens or non-citizen permanent residents and who are attending schools outside the U.S. are not currently eligible for our loans.

What can international student loans be used for?
International student loans, like all private education loans, can be used for education-related expenses including such things as tuition, books, fees, insurance, transportation, room and board and other school-related expenses.
What is the maximum loan amount that I can apply for?
You can apply for up to the total cost of education, minus other aid, as determined by your school. To determine your maximum loan amount, or what can be included in your loan, you will need to contact your school's financial aid office. After you apply and receive credit approval for you and your co-signer, your school must certify the amount of the loan.
I'm a non-US citizen nor a US-permanent resident studying in a destination outside the US, am I eligible for a loan?
Unfortunately, our loan programs are for international students from anywhere in the world studying in the United States, or for US students studying abroad. We do not currently have a program for international students studying elsewhere in the world, even with a US co-signer.
