Private Loan Lenders
After all Olivet scholarships, grants and aid is applied, you may have a remaining balance. We strongly encourage students to exhaust all federal aid and loan opportunities before considering private loan options.
We encourage all students to pursue federal student loans before considering a private loan. Federal loans have more favorable terms, are guaranteed by the government and have low interest rates. Nearly all students are eligible for federal student loans regardless of your credit score or financial history. And federal loans feature a grace period after graduation when no payments are due.
