    Why does a cosigner help?

    Applying with a cosigner who has good credit and positive income can help you satisfy credit criteria and may increase your chances of passing the initial credit review. Most students will need a cosigner to qualify.

    What is cost of attendance?

    Cost of attendance (COA) is an estimation of tuition and fees, room and board, transportation, and other costs for the period of enrollment covered by the loan, as determined by the school.

    Please keep in mind that COA may vary by student due to a number of factors, including:

    • Residency status (Are you paying in-state or out-of-state tuition?)
    • Type of academic program (Are you an undergraduate or graduate student?)
    • Housing status (Are you living on or off campus?)
    • Number of hours enrolled (Are you enrolled full-time, 3/4 time or 1/2 time?)

    Where can COA be found?

    Check these sources:

    • Your school's financial aid materials including its website
    • Your school's financial aid office
    • Your financial aid award letter

    What is estimated financial assistance?

    Estimated financial assistance includes the total dollar amount of grants, scholarships, work study and federal loans (Stafford, Parent PLUS, Grad PLUS, Perkins, etc) a family receives to fund a student's education for one academic year.

    Where can estimated financial assistance be found?

    If you have received an award letter from your school, the estimated financial assistance should be included there. If you have difficulty determining your estimated financial assistance, you may want to contact your school's financial aid office.

    Requested Loan Amount

    Enter the amount of money you need to borrow and make sure it is within the minimum and maximum loan amount range. This range is based on a number of factors, including your school and loan type.
    As you determine the best way to finance your education, you should consider the full range of student financial aid options available to you. Private loans are often used to supplement federal student loans, when federal loans are not sufficient to cover the full cost of education.

    How much can I borrow?

    The minimum and maximum you can borrow for the upcoming semester/academic period is determined by the school you are attending, the loan type you selected and your state of residence. You must select an amount for the upcoming semester/academic period that is within the approved range.

    If you choose to refinance existing private student loans, select the Add Loans button to separately enter the payoff amount(s) and details of the loans you are requesting to refinance.

    help icon
    What is Cost Less Aid?
    Cost Less Aid simply means that you can borrow up to the cost of attendance for your school minus any other financial aid that you may be receiving. Don't worry if you do not know yet how much other aid you may be receiving; your school will verify that you are not requesting more money than you actually need.

    Help Topics

    What Factors Help Icon
    What factors are used in the initial credit review?
    The initial credit review is based on the information you and your cosigner (if applicable) provide during the application process and the information obtained from your credit report (and any cosigner's credit report). If you pass the initial credit review, documentation will be requested. A signed Credit Agreement and Applicant Self-Certification Form is required before a final loan decision is made. Your school will be required to certify a SunTrust private student loan prior to disbursement.

    What Happens Help Icon
    What happens if I default on my loan?
    Defaulting on your loan is a very serious matter, and one that could have a long-term, adverse effect on your credit score. Loans are in default on the first day after a missed payment, and are usually reported to consumer reporting agencies as "late" after 30 days. Student loans are generally not dischargeable in bankruptcy proceedings. If you default on your student loan, you should contact your servicer immediately to establish a satisfactory repayment arrangement.
    Prepay Help Icon
    Is there a penalty for pre-payment or paying the loan off early?
    No, you can pay your loan off early regardless of your repayment terms without any penalty. You will only be charged the amount of interest that has accrued on the loan until the day the loan is paid off.
    What School Help Icon
    In order to apply for a loan, do I need to know what school I'm attending?
    Yes, you need to be enrolled at least 1/2 time as a student at an eligible school.
