You should only use private student loans as supplemental funding after you have exhausted all other sources of financial aid, including grants, scholarships, Work-Study, and federal student loans. As with any student loan, be conservative and only borrow what you absolutely need. The maximum amount a student may borrow per academic period is the total cost of attendance budget minus all financial aid received. Lender terms and conditions will vary, therefore it is important to research each loan program.

You will also need to complete the Private/Alt Loan Certification Request form AFTER your loan has been approved by the lender.
