How to Apply for Private Education Loans

The application process varies from lender to lender. Make sure you understand the application procedures, eligibility criteria, interest rate and processing fees, disbursement procedures, and repayment terms before you choose a lender.
We suggest using ELM Select as a research tool to help choose your lender.  

The lenders displayed on ELM Select have worked with Fordham in the past and are offered as options for your convenience.  Our office carefully vets these lenders, and students use them to meet their borrowing needs.  You are not limited to these lenders and you may choose any lender you wish. 

Once approved, your lender will notify Fordham and we will verify your enrollment.
