Can undocumented students apply for private student loans?

  1. Oct 16, 2013 #1
    Can undocumented students get private student loans? I'm a senior and I want to apply to colleges but don't know what college is best for me. I'm applying to MIT, Boston University, MSOE, Worcester Polytechnic Institute. But can someone recommend me a few other no loan colleges that have strong programs in electrical engineering and physics? And if the scholarships I get aren't enough, then how can I get private student loans? (I'm undocumented, therefore, not eligible for FAFSA.)

    You need professional legal advice.

    Colleges receiving federal aid - which is 99.99% of them - are required to report to the federal government all their international students. That's you. Yes, there are a large number of "what ifs", which is why you need professional legal advice.
