Private Education Loans

Students are encouraged to apply for all scholarships, Federal grants and Federal loans for which they are eligible before considering a private education loan, sometimes called an alternative loan. Terms and conditions for Federal student loans may be more favorable than those of private education loans.

Private education loans allow students to borrow in their own name, without any government guarantee. The loans are based on the borrower’s credit, and it is often beneficial to have a credit-worthy co-signer. Since these are not governmental loans, the lender assumes more risk and may charge a higher interest rate, larger loan fees, or have more stringent credit requirements than the federal loan programs. Private loans cannot be combined with federal loans if a student wishes to consolidate his/her loans after graduation.

Selecting a Lender

Selecting a lender for a private loan is an important decision.  The loan programs differ, so it is important that you know the terms and conditions of the loan as well as your rights and responsibilities as a borrower.  Students (and families) are encouraged to research the lender benefits, customer service and other information related to loan processing, services and cost.  Remember that a loan is a debt that must be repaid, so it is recommended that students borrow wisely and no more than is necessary.

To assist in the comparison and selection process, IOHS provides a Preferred Lender List on this page.  These lenders were chosen based on the quality of products and services provided.  In selecting our preferred lenders we considered several factors: competitive interest rates, low or zero origination fees, borrower benefits such as co-signer release and interest reductions during repayment, stability and reputation, and quality of customer service.  As the borrower, it is your right to select a lender not on this list.

Funding Opportunities

At the present time, IOHS has vetted the following  companies for the IOHS student body. This process is not meant to exclude any other bank or agent. The student may choose any banking or loan company or agent that is approved to provide banking services in their state. Please be aware that this is a private company and rates may be higher than other financial institutions available to you.
