Alternative Loans or Private Educational Loans are administered by private lenders. There are a variety of lending institutions that offer these loans. Typically one would first take advantage of the Direct Loan and then if additional funding is needed, apply for one of these loans. However, if a student is non-matriculated or in a certificate program, the private educational loans may provide a viable financing option. Applications for these loans are made directly through the lending institution. As part of this process the Villanova University Office of Financial Assistance needs to certify that you are a student and provide certain other information. Please view the Private Educational Loan Programs and visit our link to Elm Select to compare private loan options.
