Private Loans

While Manhattan College recommends that you try to fund your graduate degree with federal financial aid first because it is generally the most inexpensive option in terms of repayment, you do have the option to obtain private loans to help bridge the gap between what college costs and what you can reasonably afford.

In addition to degree seeking students, non-matriculated students may qualify to take out loans. We suggest looking into these options:
  • RISLA - Rhode Island Student Loan Authority (open to all nationwide applicants)
  • KHEAA - Advantage Education Loan (open to all nationwide applicants)
  • Sallie Mae - Graduate Student Loan (open to all nationwide applicants)
