Raise offers a private student loan option for borrowers with good credit or who have a creditworthy cosigner. Its interest rates are slightly higher than some other student loan lenders, so you might consider shopping around to make sure you're getting the lowest rate. If you do borrow from Raise, you won't have the option to defer payments while in school.
