Once you have exhausted all federal grant, loan and work opportunities along with institutional aid funds, but still do not have the personal resources to pay any remaining balance owed to Creighton, a non-federal private alternative loan may be an option to consider. Loan terms, such as interest rates and loan fees will vary depending upon the lender. These loans are based on the borrower's credit worthiness. They are provided by commercial lenders and are very similar to any other type of non-collateral consumer loan.
Lenders offer different loan programs based upon program of study. Students can borrow up to the cost of education minus other aid. All alternative loans require students to complete a separate application every year.
Below is a listing of national alternative loan programs that Creighton students have used during the past 3 years. Creighton does not endorse any such loan provider nor does Creighton have any type of relationship with any lender offering this type of educational loan. Creighton does not participate in any way in determining the credit worthiness of the applicant leading to approval or denial for this type of loan.
Local or regional lenders may offer alternative loan programs. This link will help you compare loans and determine which loan program is best suited for your needs.
