US students that want to spend their college career overseas have difficulty finding funding at the right levels. Here’s the press release where InternationalStudentLoan.com made a splash with higher loan limits of $50,000 per year for undergrads, and $70,000 per year for grads. Stafford loans alone just don’t do the trick.
|InternationalStudentLoan.com Announces Higher Loan Limits for Foreign Enrolled Students|

For US students that enroll directly in a foreign school for their undergraduate or graduate education, costs are higher and funding options are much more limited than for domestic study. Federal loans can only cover a portion of the cost, and other aid is often not available. To address escalating funding needs, InternationalStudentLoan.com has introduced higher funding limits for the Foreign Enrolled Loan for US students studying at approved foreign schools, allowing students to borrow the full cost of their international education.
Quincy, MA (PRWEB) June 20, 2006 — For US students that enroll directly in a foreign school for their undergraduate or graduate education, costs are higher and funding options are much more limited than for domestic study. Federal loans can only cover a portion of the cost, other aid is often not available, and the weakened dollar puts many already expensive but popular destinations for US students, like the United Kingdom and Western Europe, out of reach. Private student loans have become an increasingly popular and available method to finance an international education.
To address escalating funding needs, InternationalStudentLoan.com has introduced an improved Foreign Enrolled Loan for US students studying at approved foreign schools. The Foreign Enrolled Loan now has high funding limits of $50,000 per year for undergraduates and $70,000 per year for graduate study, allowing students to borrow the full cost of their international education. Keith Clausen, President of InternationalStudentLoan.com, commented “We are delighted to offer a loan with higher funding limits that are more realistic considering all of the costs associated with an international education. Although we encourage students to avail themselves of federal aid and scholarships whenever possible, the shortfall can be quite dramatic. Our Foreign Enrolled Loan can fill the gap, or can be the sole funding source when necessary.”
Hundreds of foreign schools are approved for the Foreign Enrolled Loan, including medical, dental, business and law schools, with more schools being approved all the time. There are no application fees or out-of-pocket costs, borrowers can apply online or by phone, and the entire process can be completed in as little as 2 weeks.
“As the value of an international education continues to grow, and demand for internationally-trained graduates soars, more and more US students are enrolling directly in foreign schools. These students need realistic financing options. With deferred repayment, competitive rates and a simple application process, foreign enrolled students can access private loans just as readily as domestic students.” added Mr. Clausen.
Undergraduate and graduate students can apply for the Foreign Enrolled Loan at http://www.internationalstudentloan.com/foreign_enrolled/ or by calling (800) 926-3069.
