Private Loan Programs

Signature Loan Update:   Signature Loan from Bank One was originally one of our preferred lenders listed on the 2001-02 Alternative Express Loan Application.  Please be advised that we have substituted Law Loans for Signature Bank.  The same terms still apply.  In addition, Saliie Mae is still the servicer for that particular loan program. 

Promissory notes for Law Loans are available in the Office of Financial Aid.

IlT Loan from IDAPP:  If you chose Illinois Institute of Technology as your private loan lender for the 2001-02 academic year, you must also select Illinois Institute of Technology as your preferred Federal Stafford Loan lender, -OR- you must select a lender not on our preferred lender list but who is an  Illinois lender for your Federal Stafford Loans.

You can apply for this loan online at www.IDAPP.com.
 If you want the school to initiate the process, you must complete an Alternative Express Loan Application.
