    There is not much you can do about your situation.

    Your loan options are...

    1) You should try "Comprehensive/Sponsored Access Loan" from Access Group. They will give loan if you husband acts as a co-signer.

    2) Try loans from banks in you own home country for foreign education.

    3) Get hold of some generous US permanent resident (green card holder) with good credit history to cosign your loan.

    Good luck !!

    Trust me, there is pretty much nothing that you can do without a co-signer. In my 2 years of school i tried every possible loan or bank, no one gives you a loan without a co-signer. Even a small amount like 5000 dollars is not possible.

    Plus for the Access Group, its you, the applicant that should have a 3 year credit history, they will not give it to your spouse or friend because only you can get clearence from school and approval for the loan.

    Sorry but that what I learnt in my school years. Hope it helps.

    Certainly, your husband can be a co-signer with a 5-6 yr credit history. Access group is the place to apply for your loan with husband consinger. The H1b visa does not matter that much as the as the credit history matters.

    I dont understand what you are talking.... "nyucd doesn't come under there list of lenders". The lender is "access group" not nyucd. I dont know about sally mae.
