Private or Alternative Student Loans

The lenders listed are lenders previously used by students at Shaw University. These loans are credit based loans that require a good credit history. Families are encouraged to carefully review and consider the terms of any private loans prior to applying. Shaw University requires that you receive pre-approval and complete the promissory note before the Financial Aid Office will certify your alternative loan. Please review and consider your choice wisely.
