Private/Alternative Student Loans

Sinclair partners with several lenders to offer loans to students who do not qualify for federal loan programs or who need additional financial assistance to meet educational expenses.

These are student loans offered by a lender or servicer.  They are not guaranteed by the Federal Government.  Private loans are meant to help students cover education costs not met by other forms of financial aid. It is recommended that students take full advantage of all federal loans available to them before considering a supplemental private loan.  Below is a website with additional information on the private loans offered at Sinclair.  This website is not operated by Sinclair Community College.
