Private Loans

Students may be eligible to borrow alternative loans for their educational expenses. Eligibility criteria, loan limits, interest rates and repayment terms will vary from one loan program and lender to the next. We recommend that you use the alternative loan programs as a last resort after exhausting eligibility for the federal loan programs.

A historical list of the alternative loan lenders used by our students in the years, and who are currently lending to our students, is available. Riverland Community College does not endorse any specific lenders nor does Riverland Community College or it employees receive any benefits or compensation from any lenders.

You are free to borrow from any participating lender, not just the ones available on our historical list. Please be sure to compare the benefits and select the program that best fits your borrowing needs.

Our officials are prohibited from accepting any financial or other benefits in exchange for displaying lenders and loan options in FASTChoice. Prohibited activities include: receiving compensation to serve on any lender board of directors or advisory boards; accepting gifts including trips, meals, and entertainment; allowing lenders to staff our institution’s financial aid office; allowing lenders to place our institution’s name or logo on any of their products; and owning of lender’s stock (for college officials who make financial decisions for our institution).

The inclusion of a loan or lender on this site does not imply endorsement. Riverland does not endorse any loans or lenders. Note that information is provided by the lender and is subject to change. Riverland is not responsible for the content lenders provide or the content of lender websites. You can contact lenders directly to confirm details, if needed.
