To help you prepare your private student application, please refer to the checklist below.
- School information (school name, your major, grade, and the school term for which you need the loan)
- Social Security number
- Permanent U.S. address
- Employment and income information for the borrower and/or cosigner (if applicable)
- Cost of attendance and estimated amount of financial assistance you expect to receive (if applicable)
Consider applying with a cosigner. (A cosigner may help you qualify for a student loan and potentially get a lower interest rate, however, a cosigner is not required to apply).
