Student Line of Credit

Many banks and credit unions offer a 'student line of credit,' providing students with a pre-approved borrowing limit. Interest is paid only on the borrowed amount, with repayments starting after graduation. This option is useful for students ineligible for government aid due to income or program length, offering a simpler application process.
