Puget Sound encourages students to pursue Federal student loans and grants prior to applying for private educational loans. Private loans are designed to meet educational costs not covered by other forms of financial aid.

To help you and your family navigate through the complex information provided by private lenders, Puget Sound has identified a list of lenders and has partnered with FASTChoice, an online loan comparison tool designed to help you select the lender best suited to your particular needs. Please keep in mind that Puget Sound will work to ensure the prompt processing of private educational loans from any lender you select, including those not listed on FASTChoice.
