Private (Alternative) Student Loans
Jewell certifies many private educational loans for students who need assistance to cover additional educational expenses. Interest rates are based off either the LIBOR or Prime interest rate. The amount above or below the current interest rate will be determined by your credit and your co-signer's credit should you apply with a co-borrower. Not all lenders require a co-signer; however, one may be necessary if you do not have an established credit history. William Jewell recommends a select group of loan products based on customer service and borrower-friendly benefits we have solicited. You are not required to choose one of these lenders or loan products; however, we recommend that you start here when beginning your private student loan search.
The William Jewell College Code of Conduct regarding lender relations is available for public review.
Note: William Jewell College encourages all students to exhaust all Federal loan options before pursuing the private market.
