Alternative Loans

 Alternative loans are a good resource when additional funding is needed to supplement the student's financial assistance. Students need a co-signer with good credit in order to acquire a private loan. Interest rates vary and interest accrues while the student is in college. Repayment begins six months after graduation or if you drop below full-time enrollment. You should first complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to take advantage of lower interest rates on federal loans.

Information is also available through any bank. We highly recommend that students and their families thoroughly research and compare loan companies in order to make an informed decision.
