Pursuing a college education is a great investment in your future. The time, money and effort you spend on your education will provide you with opportunities for expanded career choices and greater earning potential. Although financing your education may seem overwhelming at times, many types of financial aid are available.
Private Student Loans can help to bridge the gap between any government student aid you receive and the mount needed to attend your school of choice. Applying for a private student loan should be considered only after you have exhausted all federal, state and institutional student loan options.
Cosigners or students who can meet underwriting and income criteria may apply for the Partnership Advance Education Loan. Additional information is available at www.studentloan.org/partnership
For Iowa students who have been denied a supplemental private student loan requiring a cosigner, American State Bank participates in Iowa Alliance Private Loan Program
