Additional private student loan information for undergraduates
As an undergraduate student, you have a lot on your mind — whether it's moving away from home and adjusting to college life, or studying hard to make those grades. Moreover, many students first get involved with major finances — such as student loans — during their undergraduate years, adding to the responsibility of being a college student.
Sallie Mae helps simplify the process of financing an undergraduate education, with a selection of competitive private student loans. With loan features such as competitive interest rates, full education coverage, a choice of repayment-options, and rewards for paying loans on time, you can worry less about financing your education — and invest more of your energy towards being a student.

Manage your loan
A cosigner can really pay off
A cosigner can help you qualify
If a parent or other creditworthy individual cosigns the loan with you, it may help lower your interest rate - and give you a better chance of approval.
Cosigner release available
After graduation a borrower may apply for their cosigner to be released from the loan once they have made 12 consecutive, on-time principal and interest payments and meet certain credit requirements.
