Residency Relocation Loans

Some lenders offer private loans for residency interviewing and relocation costs. While minimizing your student loan debt is important, such loans are generally better alternatives to credit cards. These are consumer, not education loans and therefore do not require certification of financial eligibility by the Office of Financial Aid. Please contact lenders for terms before borrowing.
