Alternative/private loans should be considered only after all federal aid has been exhausted. These loans can be risky. The interest rates are almost always variable. They cannot be consolidated with federal loans.
These loans are available to law students who are or will be enrolled at an ABA-accredited law school. Students must have at least half time status and have a good credit history or a credit worthy co-signer. Students can borrow up to the cost of attendance minus any other aid through the private/alternative loan programs.
Contact the office of student financial services, before applying for any alternative or private loan.
