If you decide you need a private student loan to supplement your other financial aid or savings, contact your local credit union or bank to see if they offer any loan options for students. Starting with a bank where you already have an established relationship may provide some advantages. If you have a good history with them, it may help you secure a loan even if you have little credit history. If your current bank doesn't offer student loans, check with some of the national banking chains for college financing options.
