Loan Products 2016-2017*

Credit-Based Loan Products – Medical, Dental and School of Public Health Students

*We anticipate updating our website for the 2017-2018 academic year around mid-May, but the information it currently contains may still be useful to you now or as you prepare for the upcoming academic year.

You are not required to borrow from any lender listed here or in other University materials.  You may choose to borrow from any lender without penalty.

After determining whether you qualify for government-sponsored student loans, which generally offer more favorable terms, you may want to consider credit-based loans to help pay direct and indirect college expenses.

On an annual basis, Boston University invites private lenders to provide information about their products through a Request for Information (RFI) process. The University reviewed the information provided by every lender who submitted information and, based on the information submitted, identified the following loan products as having competitive rates, customer service, and borrower benefits. The availability of residency program borrowing was also considered.

We urge you to compare credit-based loan information and terms carefully to determine the best fit for your particular circumstances.  Please see our Graduate/Professional Degree page to obtain some leads.  In addition, you may use our list of questions when evaluating a lender and their products.
