Student Loan Checklist:

  1. Have you considered federal student loans?

    Apply for financial aid for college or graduate school with the government's online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

  2. Do you have a cosigner?

    A cosigner can drastically improve your chance of being approved, so you may want to ask a parent or guardian to act as your cosigner.

  3. Are you enrolled in an eligible school?

    Use our search tool to see which loan options are available for your school.

  4. Do you have your financial information ready?

    Make sure you or your cosigner have the proper financial information ready before you start the application process. This could include: social security numbers, gross annual incomes, a copy of your latest tax returns, or a recent pay stub.

  5. Do you have your school information ready?

    Be prepared to provide information about your graduation date, loan period, and the amount you’ll need to borrow.

Common Student Loan Questions, Answered

What is a cosigner?

A cosigner (usually a parent or guardian) is somebody who signs on to a private loan with a borrower (the student in need), guaranteeing that if the borrower cannot pay back the loan, the co-signer will be legally responsible for the loan repayment.

When applying for a private loan (as opposed to a public loan), a cosigner is required since most students have little to no credit history and very little income, both of which are necessary for the bank to evaluate your ability to pay back a loan. Lenders are not likely to approve a loan for somebody with no proven track record of being able to pay back debt and little income to do it with.

What is the difference between private loans and federal loans?

  • Private loans come from a bank, credit union, state agency, or a school. Federal loans come from the federal government.

  • Private loan interest rates can be fixed or variable. Federal loan interest rates are fixed.

  • Private loans require the borrower to have a credit history or a cosigner. Federal loans do not require a credit history or a cosigner.

  • Private loans do not allow you to file for deferment or find an income-based repayment plan after graduation. Federal loans offer deferment and income-based repayment plans after graduation.

Generally, private loans tend to be less flexible when it comes to interest rates, repayment, and qualification, which can be an issue if you have trouble finding work after graduation.

Read more about the differences between private and federal loans.

When do I start paying back my loans?

If you take out federal loans, you have a “grace period” or a period of 6 months after graduation, which students usually need to secure employment and have enough income to make monthly payments. After the 6 month grace period, you must start repaying your loans and accrued loan interest in monthly installments.

Contact your lender to learn more about the different repayment plans. Staff is available to help you choose a repayment plan that fits your needs.

Private loan payments are most likely due while you are still in school.

What is student loan interest?

Interest is defined as “money paid regularly at a particular rate for the use of money lent, or for delaying the repayment of a debt”. In layman’s terms, interest is the money you have to pay in addition to the original amount as an added fee for borrowing the money. Student loans have varying interest rates, that is, the percentage of your outstanding loan payment that you must pay in addition to the original amount.

This loan is for undergraduate students at participating degree-granting schools. Students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents must reside in the U.S., attend a participating school in the U.S., apply with a creditworthy cosigner (who must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident) and provide an unexpired government-issued photo ID to verify their identity. Applications are subject to a requested minimum loan amount of $1,000. Current credit and other eligibility criteria apply.

  1. Interest is charged starting when funds are sent to the school. With the Fixed and Deferred Repayment Options, the interest rate is higher than with the Interest Repayment Option and Unpaid Interest is added to the loan’s Current Principal at the end of the grace/separation period. Payments may be required during the grace/separation period depending on the repayment option selected. Variable rates may increase over the life of the loan. Advertised variable rates reflect the starting range of rates and may vary outside of that range over the life of the loan. Advertised APRs assume a $10,000 loan to a borrower who attends school for 4 years and has no prior Sallie Mae loans. The borrower or cosigner must enroll in auto debit through Sallie Mae to receive a 0.25 percentage point interest rate reduction benefit. This benefit applies only during active repayment for as long as the Current Amount Due or Designated Amount is successfully withdrawn from the authorized bank account each month. It may be suspended during forbearance or deferment, if available for the loan.
  2. Although we do not charge a penalty or fee if you prepay your loan, any prepayment will be applied as outlined in your promissory note-first to Unpaid Fees and costs, then to Unpaid Interest, and then to Current Principal.
  3. Loan amount cannot exceed the cost of attendance less financial aid received as certified by the school. Sallie Mae reserves the right to approve a lower loan amount than the school-certified amount. Miscellaneous personal expenses (such as a laptop) may be included in the cost of attendance for students enrolled at least half time.
  4. This promotional benefit is provided at no cost to borrowers with undergraduate or parent loans with a first disbursement between May 1, 2021 and April 30, 2022. Borrowers are not eligible to activate the benefit until July 1, 2021. Borrowers who reside in, attend school in, or borrow for a student attending school in Maine are not eligible for this benefit. Chegg Study®️ offers expert Q&A where students can submit up to 20 questions per month. No cash value. Terms and Conditions apply. Please visit for complete details. This offer expires one year after issuance.
