Loan Options 
Some US-based banks offer student loans to international students, generally if the loan is co-signed by a creditworthy US citizen or permanent resident (holder of a “green card”).  There may also be restrictions on the type of visa (F1 or J1) a student must hold to apply for a loan.  
Find information on several alternative loan options. In addition to the loan options available on that page, there may be additional loan options available to you, including ones that may provide lower costs or greater benefits.  International students are encouraged to review resources that may available in each student’s home country.  Begin exploring options as soon as possible, as it may be easier to apply before you leave for the United States.
