Private Loans FAQs

Private loans are not part of the federal program. Private loans are managed through private lenders, issued by banks or credit union and require a co-signer. Eligibility, rates, terms and conditions vary.

If the private loan is for an upcoming semester, the funds will be scheduled to pay out at the beginning of the semester. If the funds are for the current semester allow about 2 weeks for all processing requirements.
