International Student Loans

The Haas Financial Aid Office has secured a new loan option beginning spring 2015 for the Executive MBA international students who do not have access to a U.S. Co-signer. The lender was selected based on the ability to make loans at reasonable rates for a population of students ineligible for Federal Loans and who do not have access to a U.S. co-signer.

Other lenders

In addition to risk-share loans, other lenders such as Prodigy Finance offer loans to international students without the need for a co-signer. These lenders will have varying qualifications (e.g., credit check), loan terms and loan maximums. Students are encouraged to carefully explore all loan options available to them.

The Haas Financial Aid Office does not receive, and will not accept, inducements from lenders in exchange for inclusion on the International Loans information page, nor does the Haas School of Business share in the profits from student loans.
