Unfortunately, international students are not eligible for Federal financial aid. However, there are a number of private educational loan options for international students who meet eligibility criteria. These options can be expensive, however, so we recommend you consider carefully before engaging with a loan.
Private educational loans may be available if you have a credit-worthy co-borrower who is a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. Please note that the qualifying criteria for private loans are becoming stricter due to the current economy. Thus, eligibility for a private loan in one year does not guarantee continual renewal in the subsequent year, as the qualifying criteria is subject to change by the lender.
