1. Evaluate loan options. International students are not eligible for U.S. federal student loans but may be eligible for private loan with a U.S. Cosigner.
Alternative Loans: Student’s interested in taking alternative loans will need to go directly to the lenders website and complete the application online. The academic period for the Fall and Spring semesters will run August through May. Spring only loans will be January through May. The maximum amount of the loan you can request is the total listed on the need analysis page times the number of semesters in one academic year. A SEPARATE LOAN APPLICATION IS REQUIRED FOR THE SUMMER TERM and EACH ACADEMIC YEAR
