Private Loans

Occasionally families may need to borrow additional funds to help cover the cost of a student’s education. Bethany provides a list of lenders for families to choose from if they would like to. Families are not in any way required to choose from the list provided.  A link to additional lenders and their terms is available on the private lenders page for families who would wish to look at more options.

Students are encouraged to always seek out Federal Student Aid options first, as these may have better terms than those of the agencies listed.
