We recommend that you brush up on the basics of financing your education before beginning the loan application process. A quick review of "Financial Aid Basics" will familiarize you with the steps involved in financing and attending a U.S. college or university.
Our "International Student Planner" explains every step involved in attending a U.S. school, from researching colleges and universities and taking required standardized tests to completing the visa application process and traveling to the U.S.
"What School Costs" covers the basic expenses associated with attending a U.S. school. By working directly with the schools you're interested in attending and through your own careful research, you may find that you qualify for grants and other forms of financial aid that will reduce the amount you need to borrow.
