Alternative loans are also known as private loans and are non-federal loans offered by private lenders such as a bank or credit union with the student as the borrower. They may help bridge the gap between the cost of education and the limited amount the government allows students to borrow from federal loan programs. There are no federal forms to complete. Loan limits and rates vary by lender, and students might need a credit-worthy cosigner. Learn more about Alternative Loans
