Can I Get a Student Loan for a Certificate Program

Yes, some private student loan lenders offer options for students who are seeking professional training and trade certificate programs.

Many students enrolled in non-degree programs don’t know where to turn when they need help paying their tuition and fees. And like them, you may be considering other types of funding, like using a credit card or obtaining a personal loan. You would want to weigh your options carefully, credit cards may come with high interest rates, and personal loans may not offer flexible options for student borrowers.
