What is a Cosigner?
A cosigner accepts equal responsibility for the repayment of a private student loan. Cosigner need not be related to the student, but many students ask a parent to cosign their applications.
- Be a US citizen or permanent resident
- Be at least 18 years old
- Pass a credit check
If the student does not have established credit history to qualify for a private student loan on their own, a cosigner is required.
Even if the student qualifies for a private student loan on their own, the student may receive a lower interest rate by adding a cosigner.
