Private Loans - Private or alternative loans are available, but they should be your last resort. Take advantage of all federal and state aid programs before you consider private loans.

Private Loans: Private loans are the last type of loan you should consider because they often have high interest rates or require a creditworthy cosigner. If you are not eligible for federal or state financial aid these programs are an alternative source of funding. Make sure you do your research before selecting a lender.
