The student must meet credit criteria set forth by the loan company and make consistent progress toward a degree. This is open to students studying in the Unites States, study abroad programs, and international students who apply with a cosigner.

Community college students can borrow a maximum of $50,000, while students attending a four or five-year college can take out as much as $100,000. Graduate students are eligible for up to $150,000, though if the student is focusing on a health field that number goes up to $150,000.

Do not use Sallie Mae for anything, this is the worst company to become in-debt to, If you come across hard times , they will sell the loan to a debt collection company that THEY OWN and charge you astronomical fees and jack your interest rate to a completely impossible repayable amount....I would suggest going to see a loan shark over this least the loan shark will just break your legs instead of crush your life....
