U.S. citizens or permanent residents should apply for Federal Stafford Loans first because of favorable interest rates and origination fees. These are variable, low-interest educational loans. The Federal Stafford Loan Program provides unsubsidized loans where you pay accruing interest while in school, grace and authorized deferment periods. These loans are need-based. They do not require a co-signer and are not based on your credit history. Deferment options are available. The FAFSA is required to determine what loans may be available.

Private educational loans are available to domestic and international applicants. For international applicants, some lending institutions may require that a U.S. citizen co-sign. Refer to the UC Preferred Lenders List for details.

For students who have been working full-time during the prior year, this expected contribution may not accurately reflect your current or projected financial situation as a full-time student. Students falling into this situation should submit a student contribution appeal form.
