Understanding International Student Loans

Are you confused by the world of international student loans? We have a handy guide in the International Student Loans Resources section - from APR to Variable Interest, and from Promissory Note to Cosigner we've got all the key terms you'll need to understand.

And speaking of cosigners - we have loans available at select schools where no cosigner is required!

Central America Scholarship Program and MPOWER have teamed up to launch the Central American Scholarship Program - three winners in this scholarship to receive up to $3,000 USD to help finance their international education at a qualifying school in the USA or Canada.

Eligible Schools for International Student Loans

Applying for an international student loan can be a very time-consuming process because not every lender works with international students, and not every lender works with every school. That's why at International Student Loan we built the loan comparison tool and compiled the eligible schools list - so you can see at a glance if you are eligible for an international student loan.

We have schools in every US state and in 30 countries around the world where we can match students with a lender that will work with them - depending on their circumstances.
