Personal and Auto Loans for International Students


As the first lending platform to international students in the U.S., Westbon is dedicated to assisting students in obtaining personal and auto loans. There are many benefits in taking out a loan with Westbon as an international student. Not only will you be able to finance your car and other larger expenses, you may also begin building credit in the U.S. with a low APR. Additionally, you are not required to have a cosigner or social security number in order to apply. Westbon is easy and efficient with a quick online application and only takes about 2 business days to approve your loan application!

How it Works

Rather than evaluating international students based on a credit score, Westbon takes your academic, financial and personal information into account when offering a loan. In fact, 86% of international students who are approved for a loan with Westbon have no credit history at all. Westbon also provides a monthly repayment plan making it convenient to pay back your loan.

To get started with Westbon, you will need to disclose how much you need to borrow and how long you have to pay it back, or your “term.” For personal loans, you may borrow between $1,000-$3,000, and for auto loans you may borrow between $5,000-$60,000. Additionally, terms may last 12-36 months for a personal loan and 12-45 months for an auto loan. When applying, you will be required to submit certain documents like your passport, and I-20.
