Cosigning a loan with a parent or any other creditworthy person can make the investment in college more manageable, allowing you to focus on what’s important while you’re in school - successfully completing your education.
Having a cosigner:
- May help improve your chances for approval.
- Allows your cosigner to share in the cost. Plus, a borrower may apply to release the cosigner from the loan after graduation, making 12 on-time principal and interest payments, and meeting certain credit requirements.5
