Shorelight’s latest collaborations bring new support products to improve the international student experience.

Shorelight’s newest collaborations go beyond the classroom to improve the international student experience. By providing essential services like student loans, financial services, phone plans, and more, Shorelight helps ease students’ transition into campus life in the US.

Flexible Student Loan Plans for International Students

For most international students, obtaining financial aid to support their studies can be challenging, especially without a qualified co-signer. To help fund international students’ education journey in the US, Shorelight is collaborating with MPower Financing and Prodigy Finance, international student loan servicers.

Both provide flexible student loan plans for international students pursuing degrees at eligible US colleges and universities, without the usual requirements of a cosigner, collateral, or US credit history. They offer fixed-rate loans up to $100,000 with 1.5% in interest rate discounts.
