Do You Need a Cosigner?

If you're just starting out and have limited income or credit history, you may need a trusted friend or family member to cosign for your graduate student loan. A cosigner guarantees they will pay back your loan if you cannot do so. We will tell you during the application process if you need a cosigner. A cosigner release is available upon request after you've made the first 36 consecutive, on-time payments once you are in repayment.3
