What should you be looking for
when comparing loans?
- Lowest Rate possible
- No or Low fees
- Desired payment term
- Desired amortization schedule.
- Fixed vs Variable rates
Being a US-based lender
- Creates credit history in the US
- Qualifies as a “student loan” for different employers benefits
- Easier to refinance after school
What does a co-signer mean?
Loan rates can improve dramatically if you get a US - cosigner. You would actually be eligible for Juno’s deal and we are currently guaranteeing the best private rate on the market.
Getting a US Cosigner means that:
- They (the cosigner) will be liable for your loan
- It will appear on their credit score
- It can affect their credit score and their ability to get immediate debt.
How can I remove the cosigner from my loan later?
Refinancing my Loan
- We currently provide a deal to refinance your loan when you graduate with a US offer
Paying off the loan early
- Student Loans usually don't have prepayment penalties
- Minimum FICO score of 650
- At least 3 years of credit history.
- Minimum income of $35,000 per year
- Do not have a bankruptcy
- Cosigner and primary have a history of on-time payments.
- Not have any accounts currently in collection.

Our best advice
Speak with your financial aid office and see if there are school specific no-cosigner options.
If at all possible, get a US-cosigner, your options will increase substantially.
