Private (Alternative) Loans
Private loans are non-federal educational loans in the student's name, offered through private lenders. Students may apply for a loan from any lender that offers private educational loans. While Manhattan Tech does not maintain a recommended or preferred lender list, we can talk through considerations you should keep in mind as you make a decision.  Please visit with a Manhattan Tech financial aid advisor if you are considering applying for a private loan and complete private loan counseling.
