Co-Signer Required for Most Applicants

If a co-signer is required they must be a US citizen or permanent resident, with good credit, income history and who has lived in the USA for the past 2 years. If you do not have a cosigner please use the comparison tool to see if there's a no cosigner loan available at your school.

Japanese students can apply for up to their school's total cost of attendance, as determined by the school, minus any other aid received. Total cost of attendance includes room and board and other living expenses. In most cases Japanese students are required to have a US citizen or permanent resident as a co-signer to apply for this loan. International student loans typically offer:
