Selecting Your Alternative Loan Lender 

Choose the lender you wish to borrow from while attending Wichita State. You can choose only one lender to process your loan.  Our institution does not endorse any lenders.  However, we are providing a list of lenders that Wichita State students have used in the past five years. You may select another lender or choose a paper application process, but be advised that delays may occur as these lenders do not process with us electronically.

You have the right to select the education loan provider of your choice, and are not required to use any of the lenders or loans listed here.


We strongly encourage you to exhaust your federal borrowing options, if eligible, before you consider private loans.

After clicking on your choice, you will leave Wichita State's website. You will need to contact the loan lender if you have questions about their website or loan application process. Contact information is located on each lender’s website.

Wichita State University does not receive any monetary or material benefit from listing these lenders.
