Harford Community College does not have a preferred lender arrangement. If interested
in this type of loan, contact the financial institution of your choice more more information.
NOTE: The total requested amount of the loan may not exceed your total cost of attendance
minus any other aid awarded. Students are strongly encouraged to apply for all Federal
Aid including Direct Loans before applying for Alternative loans.
It is recommended that students complete a FAFSA to see their Federal Direct Loan
options before making a decision about additional borrowing.
Private student loans are not part of the federal student loan program and may require
a credit check. You may borrow private loans from any lender you choose. Some private
loans are open only to students taking credit classes, but others will consider continuing
education (noncredit) students as well.
