  • Private Education Loans: You can find a private student loan using the Private Student Loan Marketplace. The Marketplace is the only website that presents, side-by-side, the specific loan rates and terms you would see if you applied with each lender directly. You should then pick the private loan that is most appropriate for you and continue on to your chosen lender to complete the loan process. The Marketplace will pull your credit report in order to instantly simulate the actual terms of loans available to you from local and national lenders – complete with APR, interest rate, total cost, monthly payment, borrower benefits, fees and repayment options. Your credit report will not be harmed by using the Marketplace. Remember that only by completing the lender’s application can you be sure to receive the product rate and terms you select in the Marketplace.
