Sixup no cosigner student loan

A No Cosigner Loan Designed for You

Not everyone has access to a cosigner with great credit. At Sixup, we don’t think that should ruin your chances of going to college; that’s why we created merit-based loans. We give loans based on GPA and other academic factors so you don’t need a cosigner or a credit history. Plus you’ll get more than just a loan, you get free tutoring, essay review and career tools.

To apply for a Sixup loan you'll need to have a GPA of 3.0 or above. We don't accept cosigners and you don't need a credit score, but if you have one it needs to be over 600.

Take a look at the other requirements below.
