Have a Bad Credit but Need A Student Loan, How?

Bad credit is always an obstacle when you need finance. Lenders will not grant money to someone they think will not be able to repay it and that is what bad credit tells them. Thus, further assurance of repayment needs to be offered in order to convince them. The key is to use the benefits of certain types of loans to your advantage and find a way out whenever a loan turns out too onerous.

Government Loans For Students Do Not Consider Credit Score Or History

Those loans for students that are granted by the government do not consider credit score or history as a variable for approval. This is due mainly to the fact that those who apply for these loans have no credit history at all but also because these loans are meant for helping those going through underprivileged situations to pay their way through college and graduate.

Stafford loans (granted by the US department of education) and Perkins loans which are also granted by the federal government but are assigned according to the needs of the applicants and not on a first arrived first served basis are examples of the above. As long as there are no records of non-attendance of federal loans, your credit score and history will not be an obstacle to obtaining a federal student loan.

PLUS Loans When The Money Granted Is Not Enough

PLUS loans are meant to fill a gap that turns federal loans into an imperfect financial source. Federal loans presuppose that the applicant will have aid from family members and thus, the amount of money granted usually does not cover for all the costs of college studies. PLUS loans are granted to parents to let them help with their children college payments.

PLUS stands for Parent Loan For Undergraduate Students and are low interest loans for parents that let them borrow up to the full cost of their children education as long as there are no other financial aid in which case, the amount of additional aid must be deducted from the overall PLUS loan available amount. These loans require credit checks, but the credit report that will be verified is the parents’ and not the student’s.

Private Bad Credit Student Loans And Consolidation

Sometimes federal loans are simply not enough and you need to resort to private funding. PLUS loans are an option but are not always available if parents do not meet the income or credit requirements. Bad Credit Private Student Loans are available as well as No Credit loans, only critical delinquencies like default or bankruptcies can prevent you from getting finance if you can afford it.

However, you need to bear in mind that the cost of financing will be higher with bad credit and that whenever possible you should consolidate your student debt if you can obtain a lower interest rate due to an improvement on your credit score and history.
