WHO CAN APPLY

To apply for a loan you need to be:

  • A U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • 18 or older
  • Enrolled in an eligible school at least half-time
  • Pursuing a degree program

Think you won’t qualify for a loan on your own?

Apply with a co-signer who has a good credit rating. This can help you get the loan you need and could help you get it at a better interest rate. That means you’ll have lower loan payments and owe a lower total amount.

When it’s time to repay the loan, make your payments on time for at least 24 months in a row, and you might be able to have the co-signer’s name taken off the loan.
