A variety of private lenders offer alternative loans funded through non-government sources. Gonzaga recommends you complete a FAFSA® Application to determine any Federal Loan eligibility. If you need additional funding after considering all Federal Loan options, a private/alternative loan may be an option to consider. Before making a decision on a private loan or lender, Gonzaga recommends that you compare Federal Versus Private Loans.
All private educational loan programs are based on creditworthiness and most lenders require a credit-worthy cosigner for approval of loans for undergraduate student applications.
To help you with a private lender search, Gonzaga had complied a historical list of lenders. Each of the lenders below has disbursed at least one private loan to Gonzaga University within the last three academic years.
You may select ANY lender you wish without penalty (whether they are on the list or not on the list). Please contact Gonzaga with any questions you may have about federal or private loan processes.
If you have borrowed from a lender that is not listed below, please contact that lender directly. They may not be offering new private loans and as such were removed from this list. They may still be able to lend to you if you have borrowed from them in prior years.
Your lender may offer a type of private educational loan through their website that does not require school certification. Borrowing this type of private educational loan may have a serious negative impact on your existing financial aid package. Please contact Gonzaga's financial aid office before borrowing one of these loans.
Gonzaga University does not recommend or endorse any lender and adheres to a code of conduct.
Many lenders participate in a loan comparison website called ElmSelect. It is a good tool you can use to compare loan products. If your lender is not listed on the website, please contact them directly to find out about their loan products.
