With a U.S. co-signer, an international student can borrow from financial institutions at possibly a lower interest rate than the Coastal Federal International Student Loan Program. Private/Alternative Loans are credit-based student loans that require a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident co-signer. Students may borrow up to the Cost of Attendance less other financial aid. These loans provide an in-school deferment of payments and 6-9 months grace period (depending on the lender). The repayment period also varies depending on the lender. Please refer to the Duke University Recommended Lender List to view a list of loan programs and to learn more about specific interest rates, repayment terms, and other loan features.
Fuqua is proud to offer no-cosigner international student loan opportunities.
