Choosing a Lender

Choosing a lender for your educational loans is an important and personal decision.
You are free to choose any lender that you wish.  Wagner College will process loans from all lenders and guarantee agencies with the same consideration and turn-around time.

We suggest you consider factors such as customer service, fees, interest rates and borrower benefits when selecting a lender. You may want to call potential lenders and ask questions about their loan product(s) for additional information and so you may get a feel for the level of service provided.

It is recommend that you continue to use the same lender throughout the life of your loan so you may be able to then repay one agency.  Of course, if you are unhappy with a lender you may choose to use another for future borrowing.

In addition, you may also want to review the Federal Trade Commission and US Department of Education websites in reference to federal loans.

*Effective for the 2010-2011 academic year, the Office of Financial Aid will no longer maintain a Suggested Lender List.  As such, we will be unable to discuss specific lenders with the student/parent.
