What are the Potential Loan Options Available to Me?

Understanding which potential loan options are available to you as an international student can be difficult because there may be many different conditions needed to be met to receive a loan option. One of the simplest ways to explain the conditions of getting an international student loan is to compare it to applying to a university. Each school and program have varying requirements that need to be met in order to receive admission, such as test scores, essays, and letters of recommendation. International student loan options can be similar. Each lender and specific loan option may have different conditions that need to be met to be eligible.

What are Some Examples of Conditions?

There are many different conditions that may exist when it comes to international student loan options. However, please keep in mind that each lending partner is different, and so is each loan option. Therefore, loan conditions may vary, so please keep in mind that the following is not an exhaustive list of conditions that may need to be met for your potential international student loan option. They are provided as examples to help you gain a better understanding of what you might come across.

One common example of a condition to getting an international student loan option is that you must have a cosigner. Having a cosigner may be the most common condition you run into because it lessens the risk for the lending partner knowing that someone is legally bound to pay your loan option in case you cannot repay it. Furthermore, some lending partners may even limit this further to where the cosigner is from. For example, some may require that the cosigner is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident in the United States. Again, it depends on the lending partner and it depends on the loan option.

Another example of a condition that you may run into is that a lending partner may require that you have received admission into a school or program. Some lending partners may require this proof even before the approval process of your international student loan option begins. This may be a very common example, and usually once this condition has been met, the loan option process can move forward and the disbursement process can begin.

Additionally, some lending partners and loan options may only support certain schools or programs at those schools – thus you would need to attend that school and/or program to be eligible for that particular lending partner. Therefore, a condition for a potential international student loan option may even be the actual school that you plan on attending.

Not as common, but another condition that may have to be met is your test scores. Depending on what type of program you are trying to enter, this can go from a GRE or GMAT score all the way to an LSAT score. One reason a lending partner might potentially want to see your test scores is to measure how you will succeed in your program.

Unfortunately, there is no uniform set of conditions that relate to international student loan options. Each one is different, and each lending partner is different. Some lending partners may only support a certain list of schools, while others don’t. That is why we strongly suggest doing your research before applying for an international student loan option to see what lending partner and/or loan option you satisfy the conditions for.
