View Full Version : student loan for 3 yr MBA with EAD/AP or 797

Here's the situation
EAD valid till sept. 2009,
797 valid till Dec. 2010
MBA program finishes end 2011
Has anyone been in the same situation where applying for a private student loan has been denied since the 797/EAD expires before the course is complete.
Working full time right now. What are the options?

There are very few private loan options that you have. If you have a co-signer who is permanent resident or a US Citizen, you have a bigger pool of options but I know of one organization "Access Group" who give out loan if your stay in US is more than 3 yrs + if you have 4 credit cards in your name..You can dig into more details by googling them.
Most of the schools in US also have a tie up with TMS (tuition management system) which let you pay your semester fees in monthly installments. You might want to check that out too. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

I have got federal loan under this same situation. Wondering why you need a private loan ?

My school said I'm not eligible

I went back and forth with the school for 2 months and finally got the aid. Note : school aid authorities have no clue what EAD or 485 means. You have to show all the papers and prove that you are eligible. Are you technically a parolee as well ? If yes , then you are eligible.
