Important Information:

Since federal student loans generally offer more attractive terms than private student loans, you should always use your federal financing options first. You should only consider taking out a private student loan if you find that, even after your federal loans and grants, your school costs still exceed your available scholarships and financial aid. In that case, a private student loan could provide the remaining money you need.

In order to provide you with a student loan, it will be necessary for us to share the information you’re providing here with certain third parties, such as a lender or servicer. Any personal information you provide to us on this form may be shared with a third party as outlined in our privacy policy, for the purposes of providing you either with a student loan or with other products or services.
