How to Get Education Loans with Bad Credit

By Sequoia on 07/01/2010 – 4:40 am PDTLeave a Comment

Getting bad credit education loans can make it possible to get the formal education and training that you need even if you have bad credit. Here are a few things to consider about how to get bad credit education loans.

Federal Loans

One of the best ways to get a loan if you have bad credit is to pursue federal loans. Federal student loans are the easiest way to get the money that you need for college and they do not depend on your credit at all. You do not even need to have a job in order to get these types of loans. They are available for anyone that is a United States citizen and wants to go to an accredited university or college.


If you want to get a student loan from a traditional lending source, this is still possible as well. You could be able to do this with the aid of a cosigner. When you get someone to cosign the loan with you, the lender is going to evaluate their credit instead of your own. This means that they are going to overlook your credit problems and give you the money that you need for school.
