Parent Loan

Taking On a Loan for Your Student

Graduating student hugs his family after graduation, after a Parent Loan helped pay for college

Parent Loan℠ for First Source by Sallie Mae®

As a parent helping your child pay for college, a loan in your name helps you give the gift of college to your student, relieving them of the financial responsibility. Any creditworthy individuals, including parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, spouses, and guardians, can help a student achieve their dream of college.

The Parent Loan offers competitive interest rates, and the flexibility of two repayment options.

This loan can help your student pay for college expenses not covered by scholarships and federal loans.

  • A variable or fixed interest rate to choose from 

  • No origination fee and no prepayment penalty 

  • Benefits including an interest rate reduction available 

  • 100% U.S.-based student loan specialists 

Note: Students aren’t eligible to be a borrower or cosigner for the Sallie Mae Parent Loan. Borrowers, cosigners, and students must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent resident aliens.
