MPOWER International Student Loans
International student loans are a great way to help fund your education when you need to fill the financial gap. However, international students are often faced with numerous hurdles when it comes to getting a loan including trying to work with a lender that doesn’t work with international students or their school, and not having a cosigner.

MPOWER Loan Approval
MPOWER loans are designed with international students in mind and because of this, they don’t require a cosigner. Instead of looking at the creditworthiness of a cosigner, MPOWER looks at other factors including the following:
- Your credit report
- Your university
- Your home country
- Your career and academic potential
If approved for a no cosigner loan through MPOWER, international students can use the funds for all university-related expenses including tuition, books, meal plans, housing, and health insurance. Students can apply to borrow a maximum of $50,000 total, $25,000 per academic period and will need to submit a loan application for each academic period they need to apply for a loan.
MPOWER Loan Repayment
If approved for a loan students can expect fixed interest rates between 11.99% and 13.99%. Borrowers also have three ways they can qualify to receive discounts on their interest rates:
- Repay the loan through automatic withdrawal
- Make 6 consecutive on-time payments through automatic withdrawal
- Report proof of graduation and employment
Before graduation international students will make small, interest-only payments toward the repayment of their loan. Upon graduation students will have a six month grace period before a 10 year repayment term begins.
