If you are planning on studying in the United States as an international student, you may need an international student loan. These loans are available only if you have a US cosigner. International students do not have a credit history in the US and so banks and lenders require a cosigner with good credit history to be able to approve and extend credit to the student.  Finding a US cosigner is an important concept to be aware of – and we’re here to help! Join our Google Hangout this Friday to learn all about it.

What: “Finding a US Cosigner” Google Hangout

When: Friday, April 11th at 3:00 EDT

Why: We’ll discuss what a cosigner is and what’s required of them when they become your cosigner. We’ll also discuss the importance of finding a US cosigner and where you can look to find one. Once you have identified appropriate prospects to act as a cosigner for you, you’ll need to know how to address the topic with them. We’ll get you started on the right track to successful dialogue so that your prospect will agree to act as your cosigner so that you can receive a loan for your education.
