Compare US Loan Opportunities

While international students should first seek to cover their education through scholarships and other sources, in some cases students may need additional assistance funding their tuition, travel and living costs. Student loans are an additional way to finance an education, allowing students to borrow up to the total cost of their education minus any other financial aid. To be eligible, students will need a US citizen or permanent resident, who has lived in the US for at least the last two years to cosign the loan. Once a loan has been approved, US banks will disburse funds directly to the school who will then distribute the funds to the student.
