Figuring out how to fund your college education can be confusing. After you've exhausted scholarships, grants and federal student loans, you'll likely still need more money to pay for books, room and board, and tuition. Private student loans are specifically designed to fund that gap.

Picking the right in-school private student loan program is a big decision. You should do your homework, not all loans are the same. First Dakota offers two in-school private loan programs and a student loan refinance option. 

Student Loans via iHelp

The iHelp Education Loan Program is designed to meet the higher education financing needs of incoming freshmen, currently enrolled students, and their families. iHelp provides private student loans through the Student Loan Finance Corporation (SLFC) designed to supplement, but not replace scholarships, grants, and other financial aid including Federal Student loans.
