Private / Alternative Loans

What is an Alternative Loan?

If you do not have enough funding to pay for your tuition, you may apply for a bank loan in your home country or you can apply for a bank loan from a US bank.

If you are planning to apply for a loan in your home country, please contact your bank for further information. If your bank requires it, the MIU Admissions Office can issue a Provisional Acceptance Letter for the loan application.

You may qualify for an Alternative Loan from a US bank if you have a co-signer who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident with a good credit rating.

How can I get an Alternative Loan?

You may use any educational loan available from banks in the United States.
