There are still loans available for international students. International Student Loan has loans for international students in the US, with a US co-signer.

Loans have changed over the past couple years. Now, all loan amounts must be certified by your school, as you can borrow up to the total cost of education, minus other aid.

If you really want to attend an American University the best place to prepare is The University
Of English. Their University Prep Plus program helped get me into UPENN and Harvard University with
Almost a full financial Aid package. They also offer a wide range of programs to help students learn and perfect their English. All staff members at the University are graduates of Ivy League schools. Even if you do not have perfect grades you should apply. The Staff at the University of English will highlight your strengths in such a way that they will outweigh your weaknesses. The rules of the Ivy League schools and many other American Universities have changed and now International students have more options of attending these schools with financial aid. Schools Like Harvard and Penn offer full financial aid to international students. The Program at The University Of English is highly regarded and comes with a money back guarantee. The University also offers preparation for graduate and professional schools. If your really serious about Changing your future you should start with them. They helped me.

Hi, guys.. My name is Sasha and I'm a Sophomore student in Indonesia. I've planning to go study at Parsons for Fashion Design in New York, USA, but I might need help with the Financial. I already do some searching for any Financial Aid, Scholarship, or Student Loans, but I still haven't find one that fit on me (for Fashion, BFA).

Can someone tell me where to find the right Financial Aid, Scholarship, or Student Loans that fit me?

Thank you :)

If your SAT scores are good enough then sometimes you make get your tuition fees exempted for certain universities. However banks do provide low interest education loans. As mentioned by Jhon certain banks would provide a sponsored loans to you. Preparation for SAT is the one thing one should be working and dieing for in order to get the scholarship benefits. You can learn a lot from the e learning site regarding SAT. They provide a real time access to the learning resources and are highly beneficial.I recently saw a site called 1to1 tutor which promisses a rich content for preparation and extensive help from the experts in their respective fields.
