Private/Alternative Education Loan



An Alternative Education Loan is an education loan in the student’s name. It is not a guaranteed federal loan and must go through an approval process that usually requires a creditworthy co-signer. We encourage you to research various private loans. New York State provides a useful private loan comparison tool at www.utica.edu/loan-compare.

Once you have decided on a loan product you should apply directly through the lender. Borrowers will be required to submit several time-sensitive disclosures back to lenders as part of the loan process. It is important to carefully read all of the communication sent to you electronically or by mail from Utica College and your alternative loan lender. Like the (PLUS) Loan, the Private/Alternative Education Loan is taken out for the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 semesters.
