Alternative Loans

Alternative Education Loans, also known as Private Education Loans, help bridge the gap between the actual cost of your education and the amount the government allows you to borrow in its programs. Private loans are offered by private lenders, and there are no federal forms to complete. Eligibility for private student loans often depends on your credit score. Should you require funding in addition to the financial aid award, you may apply for an alternative loan. A separate application with a bank or educational lending service is required.
