Loan Programs

Private Loans

Private education loans are private loans available through lending institutions to help bridge the gap between your educational costs and available federal and state grants and federal student loans.  These loans are credit based loans that require you to have established credit or a co-signer.  Private education loan programs differ from lender to lender, so it is important that you know the terms and conditions of the loan and your rights and responsibilities as a borrower.  Always apply for Federal loans first.



Hondros College of Nursing uses FASTChoice, a free online private student loan selection, disclosure, and student education tool to offer a selection of loans. Using strict criteria, we have identified only those lenders who will provide you with exceptional customer service and excellent incentives (e.g., low interest rates, no origination fees, and loan principal reductions, timely processing, and electronic funds transfer capabilities when possible). We annually review all the information provided to ensure that the benefits lenders offer continue to adhere to our criteria. Loan options that no longer adhere to our criteria are removed and new loan options that meet our criteria are added.


You are free to select any lender and loan option, including those not presented. If you choose a loan option that is not presented, please follow the provided instructions to complete the application process. Application processing will not be delayed unnecessarily if you choose a loan option not presented.

We maintain professional relationships with all lenders. Our officials are prohibited from accepting financial or other benefits in exchange for displaying lenders and loan options in FASTChoice. These include: receiving compensation to serve on any lender board of directors or advisory boards; accepting gifts including trips, meals, and entertainment; allowing lenders to staff our institution's financial aid office; allowing lenders to place our institution's name or logo on any of their products; and owning lenders' stock (for those college officials who make loan decisions for our institution).
