Private alternative loans are offered by several lenders through their own private loan programs. Students should exhaust all federal financial aid options before applying for a private alternative loan. If you decide to borrow a private alternative loan, you must select your private alternative loan lender. The Financial Aid Office cannot select one for you or make recommendations.
Please carefully review all options available to you so that you can make an informed decision. Click here to learn more about the private alternative loan lenders we work with and that our students have used in the past few years. You can also apply for a private alternative loan through this link. If you still have questions or need more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
Private alternative loan borrowers are required to fill out a Self-Certification of Private Loans. Most lenders will provide this to you. Click here for the Self-Certification of Private Loans document.
