Private (Alternative) Education Loan information

A private/alternative loan is a variable-interest, credit-based loan taken out under the student's name. Depending on a student's credit history, many students will need a parent co-signature, which could impact the parents' credit report. This loan type has variable interest rates that could change monthly or quarterly. Most do not have an interest rate cap. Repayment generally begins six months after the student graduates or if the student drops below half-time status. You can read further about private/alternative loan options by visiting the website of the lender of your choice or by checking our list of TIU historical lenders.

Private (Alternative) Education Loans-Self Certification Forms

Self-Certification Forms are generally available from the private/alternative loan lender. They are also available upon request from the TIU Financial Aid Office (McLennan Building, Peterson Wing, lower level).
