Private loans

Before applying for a Private Loan, students are encouraged to apply for the maximum amount they are eligible for in Direct loans. (Total borrowing cannot exceed the total Cost of Attendance amount set on our eligibility questionnaire).

Graduate level students and parents of dependant undergraduates may find a Federal PLUS loan more competitive than a private loan.

We currently only accept Sallie Mae Private Loans.

We are also happy to work with any other loan provider you may identify. Once you have selected your lender for your private loan please contact the usloans@herts.ac.uk with details of the loan you have applied for, if possible please submit a copy of the application form, so that the correct school certification can also be submitted.
