Private Loan Lenders

Looking for a private loan?

IU Fort Wayne will process a private educational loan from any lending institution. To assist you in your search, we recommend using ELMselect. ELMselect is a private loan selection tool that helps students and parents make informed decisions when borrowing private loans. You can compare interest rates, terms, benefits, and more for up to four lenders at one time. You can also directly apply for a private loan through ELMselect.

The lenders available represent a historical list of lenders our students have used in the past. They are shown to you in random order.
