Sallie Mae is one of the nation’s largest student loan lenders, but it also provides personal loans. You need an invitation to get one, though, and eligibility is restricted. Also, rates can be high, so be sure to shop around before taking out a Sallie Mae personal loan.

Many or all of the companies featured provide compensation to LendEDU. These commissions are how we maintain our free service for consumers. Compensation, along with hours of in-depth editorial research, determines where & how companies appear on our site.
