International Education News

Welcome to August, the craziest time of the year! With students returning to campus, group clients renewing and enrolling, students buying policies and calling in a steady stream, this is our busiest time, as it is for many of you. So this month we’re focusing on practicalities. For last minute insurance needs, we offer our main student plan, available in 4 levels. We’re also excited to launch our new Understanding Insurance in the USA page, which features our top resources in a cool new format that makes it easy and accessible for international students. And for last-minute financial needs, no-cosigner loans level the playing field for international students and can be a great solution. Finally, we’re delighted to once again announce the judges for the 2019 Travel Video Contest, which launches September 1.

International Student Loans

Potential and current international students in the US who don’t have a cosigner have always struggled to get access to international student loans. However, loans without a cosigner are becoming available at more colleges and universities throughout the US and Canada. Loans that don’t require a cosigner are unique because:

  • They are offered without cosigners or collateral
  • No credit history is required
  • The student’s academic success and career path is considered when making an approval decision

Students are able to use our loan comparison tool to find lenders that work with international students at their school in seconds- including those that provide loans without a cosigner. If you have international students in need of financial aid to help fill the gap feel free to pass along our loan comparison tool.

Understanding Insurance in the USA

Healthcare in the US can be complicated, especially for students from a different country. That is why we have just launched the new Understanding Insurance in the USA page! Not only is this page fun and engaging, designed with international students in mind, it also helps students learn about the different facets of health insurance and health care. Feel free to link to the page and share with your students.
