90 Seconds with MEFA: Can I Get a Loan Without My Parents?

Students often wonder if they can get a college loan without their parents on the loan application. MEFA's Associate Director of College Planning Jonathan Hughes explains how by filing the FAFSA, students are eligible for Federal Direct Student Loans without any co-borrowers. Private loan approval is dependent on income and credit score, so students often need the assistance of a co-borrower for these loans.
