The Financial Aid Office works with private lenders who provide both need-based and non-need-based loans to cover educational expenses.
Educational Financing for International Students
The Stanford University Graduate School of Business has partnered with the Star One Credit Union to provide private educational lines of credit to international Business School students. There may be other private educational loans for international students. However, many private educational loans do not offer the combination of relatively low interest rates with the possibility of not requiring a US co-signer for the loan.
Please Note: Star One Credit Union will not approve a line of credit for international students who are from countries listed on the United States Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) list of programs and countries with Financial Sanctions. The list of countries include Western Balkans (Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, FYR of Macedonia), Belarus, Myanmar (Burma), Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Cuba, DR Congo, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and Zimbabwe.
Loans for US Citizens and Permanent Residents
The School partners with several lenders to provide private educational loans to GSB students. US citizens and permanent residents must first borrow government funds for which you are eligible before additional funds are available for lending.
