Private Education Loans

Private Education Loans, also known as Alternative loans are educational loan programs established by private lenders to supplement the funding that students and parents receive from federal and state sources.

Private loans often have different lending criteria than government lending programs. These loans are credit based. Students may need to obtain a co-signer to qualify for the loan.
