Frequently Asked Questions
Who is LendKey?
Since 2009, credit unions and banks have partnered with LendKey to assist borrowers by offering various loan options through our digital platform. Their mission is to improve lives through lending made simple.
Who can apply for a College of the Desert private student loan?
Students can apply for this loan if they are enrolled at least half-time in a degree-granting program from an approved school. This application is credit-based, so if you do not have an established credit history and a steady source of income, a cosigner may be needed. All applicants must be either a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and must be at least the age of majority in their state of residence.
Do I need a cosigner for a College of the Desert student loan?
A cosigner is not required, but it may improve your chances of getting approved. Private student loans offered on LendKey’s website are credit-based, so a credit and income review will be performed. It can be difficult as a student to have an established credit history and a steady source of income, so a cosigner may help meet the loan application guidelines. Furthermore, a cosigner with an established credit history may help you qualify for better terms that could save you money in the long-term.
How much can I borrow on a College of the Desert student loan?
You may be able to borrow up to 100% of your College of the Desert school-certified cost of attendance. This may include tuition, room and board, textbooks, and other related education expenses. To figure out what expenses are part of your institution’s cost of attendance, check out your school’s financial aid website or contact your school’s financial aid office directly.
